"Thank you for the hard work guys, I really love how easy to upgrade to a newer version. ;) "

That's a very useful feature, especially in the following situation: Whenever I downloaded a PC-BSD n to test it, they come along with a PC-BSD n.1 with updates. :-)

PC-BSD is a good BSD based OS for users who don't want to build a system on their own. KDE contains most of the stuff average users need, the PBI store contains the rest. On todays hardware, it runs fast enough to make a good consistent using experience.

Personally, I may say that PC-BSD is not my OS of choice. I'm using FreeBSD since the 4.0 days and I never found what advantages PC-BSD could give me which a manually tailored system can't. Furthermore, it requires more ressources, so it's not very fast on older hardware that someone might want to reactivate.

After all, a very good starting point into the world of BSD, especially for those who just want to try out. I always like to hand PC-BSD CDs around.
