This is my first foray into BSD. PCBSD 1.4
So far..so good
The installer for the packages is insanely easy and it is just a tad faster than Linux.
I'm sure many of you have given it a try as well; what did you think?
I tested older versions and also DesktopBSD and NetBSD Live 2007. I did not have problems with them, they are pretty good even perhaps if I prefer DesktopBSD at PC-BSD (and I do not like their .PBI idea)
BSD is very good, maybe still less user-friendly but with PC-BSD and DesktopBSD that changes somewhat.
I will always keep an eye on the developments of the BSD worldâ€¦

Well that sucked. I had it perfect. X11 just dumped.
My laptop's video is not supported well with 1.4
Oh well. it was quite nice to see good old bootstrap again
I am playing with Xubuntu6.10 again since it takes quite some time to boot mint on my box. Of course I hit the Mint repositories first thing.
PCBSD is among my favorite desktop OS. It's a very innovative project, their designers work fast and every release is more impressive than the previous one. If somebody said Linux Mint is the PCBSD of Linux I'd take it as a compliment.
By the way, I was inspired by the great PBIdir while designing mintInstall and the software portal. I haven't tried 1.4 yet but it looks pretty good.
