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."

I modded you up because you made me laugh ;)

I think you did the right thing, which is adapt the OS to your needs and taste. But PC-BSD is aimed at people who don't know what a "kernel" is. Same for terms like "ports", "X", "KDE".

People who know what all these terms mean and who like to tweak just about everything will have a good time with FreeBSD (not that you can't do it with PC-BSD though).
