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 really need a Gnome-based BSD solution

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.

And what app is currently available packaged as a .pbi file which is not also available via an "apt-get install packagename"? Or are you just interested in .pbi packages in theory?
