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."

Linux killer?

With PCBSD being around, I'd imagine many Linux users will switch. BSD is known for being consistent, and with the simplicity PCBSD offers on top of that, it must simply be unbeatable for everyday desktop use in the *nix world (excl. OSX).

I'm confident that user numbers will grow dramatically in a not so distant future. Hope servers will hold =)

We are testing bittorrent distribution and I hope next release would be better available than just from our 27 mirrors ;)
