While I love my SuSE 10.1 Linux, if PC-BSD keeps improving the way it has, I may have to switch. If I were MS I'd be much more worried about PC-BSD than I would be any Linux simply because PC-BSD's interface and install scheme makes it a practically drop in replacement for Windows. Once they get either aiglx or xgl working, then this will be the true Vista killer.
