I said that your claim that "PC-BSD is first to use latest KDE and various technologies that is never used on FreeBSD" is patently false. It is an overstatement. Exaggeration. And nothing you said disproves this. PC-BSD helps FreeBSD through exposing its desktop capabilities - but it is definitely not "first to use latest KDE and various technologies." You are dishonest if you claim otherwise. I never saw anything appear in PC-BSD before it was available in the official ports tree - nothing!

Because you are not PC-BSD developer- that's why.

I was unpleasantly surprised that KDE FreeBSD team decided to release KDE 3.5.5 in ports- it is buggiest release ever- we had really hard time to fix it and make at least somewhat usable- all our mounting scripts are useless with this release (kioslave was broken)- only solution was to enable that damn HALD (don't work as advertised because of FreeBSD USB bugs).

SHOW ME OTHER FREEBSD DISTRIBUTION THAT IS USING KDE 3.5.5 RIGHT NOW!

/me closes ThinkPad lid- I am sick of this shit already...

Nice attitude there ;) I've been a PC-BSD user and a contributor (PBIs) - time doesn't allow me to continue, but I'm very much a fan of the project (see my list of recommended articles here on osnews).

And you call yourself a developer? Perhaps you should have taken a look at the Makefile of kdebase - HALd support is not only optional, but off by default. You could easily avoid using HALd and continue to use your own scripts. But therein lies the dilemma: actually, switching to HALd means more testing, and more contributions... Oh wait... Instead of working with FreeBSD to fix the problems, you keep bitching about FreeBSD USB bugs, HALd disaster, etc. Have you tried the new, GIANT-less usb stack of HSP? Did you try to contact him, offering some testing/asking for help (realeasing a more up to date driver for 6.x)?

I know PC-BSD developers, and the tremendous work they put into polishing this distribution. You don't help their reputation with your attitude, or your display of ignorance.

Ah, that's why you call me a liar and such?

And you call yourself a developer?

I am doing guality assurance in PC-BSD. I didn't know you are pythoness and know what bugreports I file, what backtraces I post, what mailinglists I am reading/posting, what bugfixes I commit....

Before throwing any accusation on me you should calm down and think what are you doing.
