We target regular users who are for most of them MS Windows users and while we don't want to copy MS Windows, there are things that these users feel more comfortable with, such as crystal look and feel or a "Start" menu.

Adapting to the tastes of our target user base is critical for massive adoption. PC-BSD targets users who don't need to be computer savvy to use Unix, and also offers a fully-functional FreeBSD system for developers and system administrators to feel at home.

PCBSD does one thing none of the Linux distros I use has done with this system It configures my display to 1280x1024. Now why can't Linux bet it right?

Anyway, that was one of the nicest installs I have done. Clean and informative. This is a keeper.
