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 used PC-BSD for several months straight and very much enjoyed it. I would use it again (but right now I have no extra PC's to run it on, sold it to an acquaintance whose computer died).

Not to smudge up this thread or anything, but I also tried and enjoyed NetBSD very much. I would actually love to see a PC-BSD-like project based on NetBSD (would instantly make it more portable) since NetBSD has become a fine, responsive and fairly up-to-date (app-wise) distribution of the BSDs. The only problem I had with it was getting tunneling to work properly (for my specific case).
