In a default PCBSD install, Flash 10 is working out of the box. Flash 10 has been working on FreeBSD for some time now.

VirtualBox is available as a PBI package for PCBSD and is also available in FreeBSD as a port. VirtualBox has been usable on FreeBSD for quite a while now.

I have the new PCBSD 8.0-beta installed and it is looking great. Can't wait for the release!

About the same as on Linux. Not as smooth as on Windows, but usable.
