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."

You should read look up portinstall and portupgrade. They make upgrading and installing software from the ports easy. Also supported with portupgrade are binary upgrades to software. It is very comprehensive when it comes to software maintenance. Although it has been almost 6 months since I've used FreeBSD as my main desktop os.
