PC-BSD LinuxHelp has reviewed PC-BSD. "PC-BSD is turning out to be an excellent alternative to other desktop operating systems. After testing and using PC-BSD for some time now, I can't but admire the sheer amount of work that is put into creating, developing and molding an OS for the lay person albeit with a strong slant towards FreeBSD. The fact that PC-BSD is able to accomplish all the tasks expected by an end user - be it using the Internet for communication, listening to music, watching movies or using it for recreation purposes holds it in good stead as a viable desktop operating systems."

Nice system

This was my intro to any BSD back at version 0.6 and I've been enjoying using it since then. Now I play around with OpenBSD too, since I appreciate the logic of the system. I am a confirmed geek, I have 15 OSes on my main computer, an old and faithful Athlon 700 with 512MB of PC133. My wife, a non-techie, uses PC-BSD as her main system on a PIII-733 with 512MB of PC133. As long as you've got 256+ MB of RAM I recommend giving this OS a shot. It's not perfect yet, I personally would prefer that root be restricted by default, and sudo be used instead, but that is just me. All in all PC-BSD provides a good experience.
