Hmm, but perhaps not too long before *BSD replaces Linux...;-)

Seriously, just as I was beginning to give up on any *nix-like free OS for my computing needs, along comes PC-BSD. For my part, all I can say is that it represents the same shot in the arm for this interested but not particularly technical or time-rich user that Knoppix in its own way did.

Gee, am I turning into a fanboy...

(Please note playfulness of tone and plain enjoyment of said software without actually huge amounts of Schadenfreude re: Linux)
