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 know, but I want it so that the entire OS is built around it, like PC-BSD is built around KDE. I don't want un-integrated stuff on my computers.

I wouldn't mind giving a GNOME based BSD a try.
