PC-BSD This release marks a milestone for PC-BSD, by moving to the latest FreeBSD 7-Stable and also incorporating the KDE 4.1.1 desktop. Users will immediately notice the improved visual interface that KDE 4.1.1 offers, as well as a large improvement in hardware support and speed from the update to FreeBSD 7-Stable. PC-BSD 7 also offers a large and growing library of self-contained PBI files available for installation, and improvments for other locales on our PBI Directory website. This release also offers new methods of installation, including a DVD, USB and Internet/network install. Note: Here is an interview with the lead developer of PC-BSD.

Because he has some good questions that deserve upfront answers before he wastes time messing with it.

So others have to do his investigative work for him?

Personally, I have no interest whatsoever in Moonlight or Mono, don't have a Broadcom 4311-based WLAN card, and I tend not to use GUIs when there is a command line tool available (although I do believe there is one). I would imagine most people on OSNews fit into at least one of those categories (most likely the WLAN card).

In my opinion, the software is free, easily installed, and anybody can go to the site and read up on it to have these and any other questions answered, so I find it entirely unreasonable that the original poster would expect anybody else to do his investigative work for him.
