PC-BSD After the flood of Fedora Core 6 and Ubuntu 6.10 reviews, here is a review of PC-BSD 1.3 Beta. "PC-BSD has improved quite a bit and the use of its open-source PBI packaging system is a great idea. Although it obviously means there might be a minor delay in newly released products being ported over to the PBI package system, novice users will rejoice because the wait is well worth it. PC-BSD is a well oiled machine with its quick response times, even if you don't have that much memory in your system. Its implementation of a clean interface is welcomed by me and not having a 3D enabled desktop is not something I really would worry about unless you are an eye-candy lover."

"KDE is still ugly as sin. How long could it possibly take you to copy OS X or Vista (or hell, Windows 95)?"

Can't KDE be set to look like OS X, "Vista" or "Windows 95"? :-)

You may switch to WindowMaker, Enlightenmend, XFCE (3 or 4), Blackbox, IceWM or even fvwm95, if you like. They can be used with PC-BSD as well. The choice is yours.

KDE as the default desktop environment seems to state thatt PC-BSD is targetet as ex-"Windows" users primarily. If you don't need a desktop environment, but prefer an accurate window manager, you should simply chance it. It's not that it's impossible like in "Windows". :-) And if you removed KDE, you'll have a lot more disk space available.
