PC-BSD "After using PC-BSD several days, I was impressed with how easy it is to use. It's a good desktop OS, and a great way to introduce BSD to new users. The 1.0 release has a few rough edges, but nothing that should scare off prospective users. For the future, I'd like to see something like Synaptic to manage PBI packages and allow users to browse for software without having to visit the PC-BSD Web site, and it would be nice if the site had a little more documentation, but I expect such things will come along in due time as the project matures."

Actually, the Bytecode Interpreter is off in the former linux_base-7 that we used. Now we use linux_base-rh9 and it is enabled, but the problem is that all fonts are antialiased now. The bytecode interpreter needs to be turned on so that the antialiasing rules of fontconfig work properly though. This is the way it works on FreeBSD at least.
