BSD and Darwin derivatives Hot on the heels of the release of FreeBSD 9, it's the ninth version of its desktop-oriented offspring to jump into the spotlight. "Based upon FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE, this is the first release of PC-BSD which offers users a variety of desktop environments to choose from, such as KDE, GNOME, XFCE, LXDE and more! Also available are pre-built VirtualBox and VMware images with integrated guest tools for rapid virtual system deployment, and native support for installing directly to OS X BootCamp partitions."

Well, if we're probing for peace "Stone Soup" style, I'll say that that I'm willing to back off on my past criticisms of the PBI packaging structure. The details of my criticisms still apply. But the end result makes sense for what they are trying to do. And the ramifications are probably not so bad as I've argued previously.

That's my contribution to the soup. It wasn't trivial to get myself to say it.

But OSNews is _THE_ place to go for license wars. :-)

With that said, a diplomatic truce is certainly a nice change of pace.
