PC-BSD "Not all user-friendly desktop operating systems are based on Linux; as demonstrated by PC-BSD, it is entirely feasible to turn a "geek" project into a piece of software that can be installed and used by even less technical computer users. Distrowatch talks to Kris Moore, PC-BSD lead developer, about his love affair with FreeBSD and the upcoming PC-BSD 7.0."

Now if there was just a great, easy to install, open sourced internet hosting panel, this would be on my personal server at home instead of Ubuntu. I'd make the switch in a heartbeat.

I have not tried it, but the Alpha7 versions have a server installation option as well as a desktop install.

Virtualmin (http://www.virtualmin.org) is in the ports tree (sysutils/virtualmin), or you can just download the tarball and install it to /usr/local/virtualmin-<version> and have it auto-update itself.

Thanks for the heads up. Once I get some time on a Saturday afternoon, with a couple beers, I'll build a box up and see how it goes!
