PC-BSD is not perfect...yet ;) But concentrating our effort on security and spending more time on testing new features, we can master OS that is easy to install and suitable for all kind of users. Right now I'm testing first journaling filesystem for FreeBSD (gjournal) and so far it looks promising- next releases may contain this great "stupidfriendly" filesystem enchancement. I think that journaling is vital for server environment and we already got plans for server side development. Laptop users would like swap space encryption and memory based tmp filesystem- so nobody can extract your passwords and private data from stolen drive. And for corporate environment we have plans for installation over network, terminalserver and automated backup/restore features.

Someone may ask, "Why we release so frequently?", but "Why not?" if we can do it and there is so many enchancements that needs testing/tweaking- better sooner than later...
