PC-BSD PC-BSD announced that it will deliver Opera in the next version of PC-BSD. Opera will be "one less thing you need to download after installation", as Matt Olander, CTO of iXsystems puts it, to get "a more usable system" out of your PC-BSD box.

I can't say I've ever heard any linux people say that, though. Oh, I'm sure there have been may journalists who have made that claim at some point, but mostly I see people using it as an argument against linux ever gaining traction. It's kind of like "rpm hell" or "dll hell" or "move your mouse and BSOD in XP." These are all arguments used by detractors of the various platforms, but the reality is that all of them are largely non-existent issues, and have been for years.

Other than a goofy zealot or a just-discovered-ubuntu-newbie, can you actually say you've seen a real live linux user say "this will be the YOLOtD?"

Back on subject - I think PCBSD is doing some fantastic work and I hope they keep making progress. I haven't poked at it for several months, maybe even a year, but last time I did, I was very happy with how easy things were to install and get running.
