PC-BSD "iXsystems announced an agreement with Adobe Systems that will allow the next version of PC-BSD to have a Flash-enabled browser available on a default installation. The Linux version of Adobe's popular Flash player will run on PC-BSD using FreeBSD's Linux compatibility layer." In other news, snapshots of the development branch of PC-BSD are now available and built three times a week.

I barely got one going now with Feisty and PCBSD, and only because Grub rocks so much it'll boot just about anything

I had nothing but troubles dualbooting anything with GRUB. FreeBSD bootloader does not need any configuration- it can boot Windows XP, Vista, Solaris, Linux, FreeBSD and Other BSDs without any problem. All problems Linux users encounter is due to nonstandard disk layout(ala MS-DOS primary+extended mess)- admit that 3 primary and 6 extended partitions is lame. FreeBSD/PC-BSD needs only ONE PRIMARY PARTITION(slice in FreeBSD terminology) and all other partitions are created inside that one.
