PC-BSD For those who want an easy-to-configure and easy-to-install FreeBSD desktop system, Dru Lavigne demonstrates the features of PC-BSD and DesktopBSD. This first article is about PC-BSD. "If you haven't had a chance to try out PC-BSD, take some time to install and poke about this user-friendly operating system. If you're looking for a free and stable operating system for friends or family, burn them an ISO and have them give it a test drive."

I tried installing PC-BSD on my K62-450 box. It complained that my CPU was not supported (even though FreeBSD 6 supports it). I went to the forums and tried to sign up, but the confirmation email never makes it. Nevertheless, earlier releases did greatly impress me, and I think this is a VERY interesting desktop product. Installing OpenOffice, Firefox, Java, etc is very easy.
