LiveCD?

I don't get how come PC-BSD doesn't have a LiveCD to actually try the thing out .. or at least I fail to find it :S

DesktopBSD does have a LiveCD (and a LiveDVD for that matter) and it's great to go carrying it around to show your friends and what not how friendly a BSD can be, how good it can do to replace their actual desktop (we are talking fully desktop oriented BSDs in this case after all) and what a good way to introduce themselves into the BSD world without going full steam with Open, Free, Dragonfly ...

my 2 cents I guess ...

the reason is because you didn't take the time to make one ;) Still waiting for FreeSBIE 3.0 !!!!! (yeah, I didn't take the time to make it, either...)

You could use Frenzy or FreeSBIE, in the end it's all FreeBSD :-)

Reading the Frenzy update, it cannot be a replacement for anything on the desktop - it seems they want to remove that functionality.
