PC-BSD After months and months of work, the PC-BSD team released v1.0 final. "PC-BSD software is pleased to announce the immediate availability of PC-BSD 1.0 for x86 based processors. This first 'non-beta' release of PC-BSD ushers in a new era of stability and simplicity for desktop operating systems based on UNIX. Powered by the latest FreeBSD 6.0 and integrated with KDE 3.5.2, PC-BSD provides a solid server base, while being user-friendly enough to run as a primary desktop system." Changelog, release notes, and download, of course.

But no Bash

Looks good! I've been holding off until 1.0, so now I'm eager to try it.

One minor annoyance about the BSDs is that they all seem to default to the C shell. The first thing I do is install Bash so I can function comfortably.

But I don't even see Bash in the "All included packages" list in the release notes, so I assume that means I still have to download it separately. It just seems odd to me that the most important (IMO) package or port isn't even included.
