Would you mind sharing the article/forum/link you got this info from?
I'm a huge Free-BSD fan, and PC-BSD would be a great way to save install/config time for my 'not-so-critical' boxes.
I've tried it in the past and liked most of it. Only thing I'm not so fond of is KDE4.
Would this "environment selector" you talk about only include desktop environments (Gnome, Xfce, LXDE) or will there be an option to select standalone window managers as well. I've not used DEs in ages, and much prefer the speed and modularity offered by lightweight WMs. On the BSD front, I tend to rely on CWM for stacking and ScrotWM for tiling, and the occasional Openbox if I can find time to configure it to my liking.
I am also really excited about the up and coming FreeBSD/PCBSD 9 releases. I am currently happily running FreeBSD on my home server and Arch Linux on my desktop, but would love to go all BSD and am thinking of trying to make the jump with PCBSD 9.
Looking at all that is coming I cant help but think that FreeBSD 9 and PCBSD 9 could surprise a lot of Linux users.
PC-BSD development in 2011 = Gnome/KDE/LXDE/XFCE
What's cooking for FreeBSD 9?
