PC-BSD is a user friendly desktop Operating System based on FreeBSD. Known widely for its stability and security in server environments, FreeBSD provides an excellent base on which to build a desktop operating system. PC-BSD uses a host of popular open source window managers and uses a custom-tailored application installer that puts popular applications in easy reach of users.

Using FreeBSD for about two years, I wanted to see how much easer it really is to install PC-BSD. Let me tell you, on an older laptop, HP Pavilion dv9000, installation was flawless. I did this about a month ago and I don't know if I want to go back to FreeBSD. FreeBSD does take a lot of tinkering to install, as oppose to PC-BSD, just pop in the dvd and you are done. By the way, this laptop, dv9000, came with Vista – totally useless, nobody was using it, so I took it and turned it into a BSD machine. PC-BSD has the makings of becoming one of the most popular operating systems, ever.

BSD distros are probably one of the best os in world today...I see here some said this is bad this is ugly...bla bla...is MacOS is bad? sure not mac os is one of bsd derivates...so first read, learn etc... then said this is bad or so...bsd was and will be one of the best OS I`we ever try, you guys need just to learn and to be patient and then every os including unix/linux distros will work for you, then you will realize that windowz is...at the end of your favorite list.

PC-BSD OS 7.0.2 is the first in a long while colonized by Microsoft Windows. I found freedom and perfection here. Free from the fear of viruses roaming the Internet, are exempt from the data in the process of caring for defragmenting and registry. And the main thing is free of charge for everything. Next I've felt the PC-BSD 7.1.1 and now starting again with the PC-BSD 8. I also have tried to excellence and perfection of some Linux distributions, but somehow my heart was tied to the PC-BSD. Congratulations to Kris, continue to work for the progress of BSD.
