PC-BSD "PC-BSD is not a Linux distribution, but rather it could be considered among the first major FreeBSD-based distributions to live outside of the official FreeBSD. Like most distributions, it has implemented certain features in a way that attempts to distinguish it from the competition, and I will focus mostly on these differences. This test drive is intended to give an overview of what PC-BSD is and why one would consider using it."

How about recommending to Kubuntu users?

I find it a bit odd that the guy skips recommending it to Kubuntu users, especially as he previously mentions it's a lot more snappy than Kubuntu and loads faster.

I guess better performance is not a good reason these days....

maybe it had to with the fact that his X config was borked by default. ;)

I certainly find it a lot more usable than Kubuntu - and it has a lot nore of the KDE features I aws used to under SuSE (before Novell wrecked it).

It runs really well on my wife's 533MhZ(Via) machine, and is very usable on it, unlike most distros - even Windows 2000 seemed to crawl along in comparison.
