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."

Installed without too much hitch but didnt recognize my nvidia network card and the FAQ said to "/stand/sysinstall" to configure. Terminal reports "command not found". Then got on help forum and had a bizarre string of commands to add to the /etc config. Shoot..I must be getting old b/c I just hate spending hours trying to get standard hardware to work fiddling in the terminal anymore. SuSe 10.1 will have this partition. Maybe good for some hobbyist....
