BSD and Darwin derivatives It seems that PC-BSD has set a trend. "DesktopBSD aims at being a stable and powerful operating system for desktop users. DesktopBSD combines the stability of FreeBSD, the usability and functionality of KDE and the simplicity of specially developed software to provide a system that's easy to use and install." How this new BSD distribution stacks up against PC-BSD remains to be seen.

I'm really hoping that will come soon too-- I really need a Gnome-based BSD solution, preferably because of PC-BSD's excellent package management.

Maybe after Gnome 2.12 is released. Who knows.
At least we know 2 people that want a gnome based bsd.
Some one else a little more tech savvy then myself probably wants it as well.. So I'll keep waiting.

Not trolling, just wondering: what is it that you believe you'll get out of a BSD solution which you cannot currently get from from a Linux one?

Not out of BSD, bt out of PC-BSD: PC-BSDs .pbi package management system is excellent in all its simplicity.
