PC-BSD PC-BSD 1.2 has been released. "PC-BSD software is pleased to announce the immediate availability of PC-BSD 1.2 for x86 based processors. PC-BSD 1.2 now utilizes the FreeBSD advanced ULE scheduler and is compiled with optimizations for 686 processors (all support for 386, 486 and 586 microcode is disabled in kernel). This release of PC-BSD ushers in a new era of stability and simplicity for desktop operating systems based on UNIX, making it a solid release for home and business usage."

I purposely rebuilt my PC-BSD FreeBSD 6 kernel to change it to ULE. It ran fine. I actually did not see much of a difference. I actually felt that it seemed more responsive in some cases and less in others. This for that, so to speak.

PC-BSD is great. I have already said recently that I wished I had a PC to run it on, again! That and NetBSD... I wish someone would create a "PC-BSD" version of NetBSD. How flippin' cool would THAT be. ;)

Heh! I should have known. I will be requesting a CD in the future sometime, for sure. Bookmarked that site. Thanks!
