PC-BSD "iXsystems, an enterprise-class hardware solution provider, announced today its acquisition of PC-BSD, a rock solid UNIX operating system based on FreeBSD. PC-BSD is a fully functional desktop operating system running FreeBSD version 6, with a KDE desktop interface and graphical system installer. Its PBI system, developed exclusively for PC-BSD, lets users download and install their applications in a self-extracting and installing format. iXsystems' acquisition of PC-BSD will provide funding to the PC-BSD project to increase distribution of PC-BSD and develop future versions of PC-BSD. Development is currently underway for a version of PC-BSD that will allow for easy installation and operation on servers, workstations, and laptops."

Not really "ALL" of them... Who owns Debian or Gentoo?

Debian is owned by the group of developers behind the scenes, not necesarily a Company but their is an entity in control of the trademark and whatnot although they tend to be lax in it's control. And Gentoo is not a true distro it's a pseudo-distro. After you install it it evolves as you please.
