I have been using V1.3 for some time now and have been testing 1.4 on a second HD on the same system. V1.4 is really taking shape and looks like it is going to be very good.

I was also playing with a number of Linux distributions, including U/Kubuntu, on the same system. While PC-BSD does have some problems, but then so does every other OS, I have always returned to it. It has become my OS of choice on my Intel based HW because of the ease of use and stability.

Anyway, this release will be a good step forward. If you either haven't looked at it or haven't looked at it for some time, do so. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Do keep in mind that V1.4 is BETA so expect some problems.
