I just upgraded my 1.11 box to 1.2 via pbi update and I have to say, I am impressed. A popup window came up saying an update was available and I clicked download and it downloaded and installed 1.2 and rebooted automatically. Everything still works perfectly, still seems rock solid stable, and not only that, It didn't screw up my Nvidia drivers for which I am quite impressed.

The PcBSD developers are really doing great work, if you have a spare box or partition, you should really give this one a spin.
