But also the distros that are derived from it such as Dragonfly BSD and DesktopBSD.

IIRC then DragonflyBSD is fork from FreeBSD and DesktopBSD *is* FreeBSD just like PC-BSD.

Journaling filesystems like Gjournal and ZFS is godsent for desktop users because usually desktop computers have no UPS and in case of power failure they are first victims with messed filesystems and lost files.

Oh okay good call. I was trying to find the other name (PC-BSD) but I couldn't recall it so I thought it was Dragonfly BSD.

Either way, I agree. I also see this being really great for a fast recovery system along with a backup system. Also with the ability to write those add ons so easily with the API they provide, we could see some really neat other tools blossom it seems like.
