And thus the reason I will never use it, support it, or recommend it to anyone.

And since when did your personal opinion regarding the Gnome/KDE "issue" become a meaningful asset to the broader community?

I'm sorry to rant, but PC-BSD is a KDE centric OS based on FreeBSD. If you don't like it, fine, but there's no public value in those kind of opinions.

I've been using 1.4 beta since the first release and it works great in most aspects, network stability is one notable exeption.

Also, I've never had any success running any version of PC-BSD on any kind/brand of RAID controller. Whereas FreeBSD will run flawlessly on the same hardware. Ranging from cheap to medium and high priced controllers.

Strange, PC-BSD was only desktop BSD that supported all kind of raid controllers in installer (3ware, LSI, Adaptec). Tried same with DesktopBSD and failed.

It is a business problem, not a personal issue. I support a wide range of users who are using linux on the desktop right now. I am unable to switch them over to using a bsd based desktop because of the refusal to support the gnome environment. I simple don't have time or desire to retrain current users on kde, especially since kde is in the process of shifting from 3x / 4x.

It is really sad to see such blatant refusal to support gnome from the pcbsd project. I would love to use fbsd as a base operating system instead of (linux + gnu + random stuff).
