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.

I'm not entirely sure, but FreeBSD has recently been granted this ability throught the FreeBSD Foundation.

I don't think they are allowed, but they are simple repackaging the FreeBSD jdk and jre into an easy to use pbi.
