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."

Perhaps hell has frozen over for *nix clones. I just tried the vmware image and not only is it fast, looks good (interface is consistent and attractive) you can actually add and remove programs. You can download and double click and have a logical, graphical installer that doesn't require the command line.

job well done. The focus on the customer is obvious.

About command line:

%su -
Password:
PCBSD# cd /mnt/PBI/
PCBSD# ./Opera9-PV1.4.pbi -text
Installing Opera
Running install script...
Installation complete!

P.S. This feature would be useful for batch installation.
