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."

I just wanted to add: take you time, there is really no point in rushing this. PC-BSD 1.0-Final, when released, should hit with a BANG, so in my opinion, it is better to try to work out even minor issues than releasing something that is rough around the edges. We have plenty of that kind of releases in linux-land, especially among desktop oriented distributions (Mandrake/driva, Kubuntu Breezy - the last one I tried - PC-BSD is already as good as these, but that is not good enough imho... we should do better ;) )
