PC-BSD "With all of the BSD variants available for download, it's easy to incorrectly assume all of them are pure, incompatible forks from each other. Actually, there are more shades of BSD out in the world than just separate forks. One in particular made the news a couple of weeks ago when it was commercially acquired. The BSD in question is PC-BSD. The company that bought it is iXsystems, a systems deployment and integrator firm out of San Jose that has pretty strong experience implementing *BSD, Unix and Linux systems for its customer base. So, why did the company up and buy PC-BSD?"

It's a thin line between passion and fanaticism.

>PC-BSD will become popular if and only if it has a good number of passionate advocates.

It will be popular if it stays "true". Any kind of hype would be the death of this flavour in the long run and a great damage to FreeBSD too.
BSD is BSD! It's no Linux.
