PC-BSD PC-BSD is a new FreeBSD 5.3 distribution, with a graphical installer and KDE 3.4 as its desktop. A new beta version was just released, and though I can't say I have much experience with FreeBSD, or any *BSD for that matter, I was curious enough to try it. And I'm glad I did. From a desktop user's point of view, completely oblivious to the many virtues and sound foundation of all things BSD, all I really ever wanted was an OS that is solid, easy to install and, well ... fun to work with.

Look, its a good idea, if you can and want to install FreeBSD the regular way, then have at it, its your choice, but to be able to to just point and click through an instalation like this is great. I'm a Linux user but now I'm dowloading PC-BSD, to use as a desktop, and since a lot of Linux users will try it out, why not welcome them instead of calling them babies that have to be hand fed? If you guys think that *BSD is a great distro, and should be given as much attention as Linux, here's your chance to prove it.
