I couldn't find it either, so I just installed it on a spare hard drive. Pretty slick so far, the only issue I've had is that downloading from the App Café is really slow. That's to be expected with a new release though.

It's not quite ready to replace Manjaro Linux on my main workstation just yet, but it may earn a place on my Mac mini soon!

Yeah, my problem is I can't spare any room for it (maybe when I delete the Win8 eval partitions), so for now a live DVD is the only way. That's somewhat disappointing. How is it compared to 9.0?

Well I've changed hardware since then so take that into consideration, but it seems to be much more stable and cohesive this time around. I know some of that is due to improvements to KDE as well, as only very recently I've been able to use that DE to get work done.

I'm definitely impressed though! I'm considering moving away from GNU/Linux on my workstation and vanilla FreeBSD is a pain to install and configure, so I jumped on the chance to try the new PC-BSD. For me, it's almost there. I also love the "True OS" server features; geeks.com has some nice server hardware on sale really cheap and I'm thinking of picking up a unit for bare metal to play around on. BSD is my first choice for a server OS.
