PC-BSD 0.8.2

I know that FreeBSD guys like sjaz will probably laugh at this but I think of it like a very interesting idea and I thought of sharing it with Polarhome users! :)

What is PC-BSD? Simply-put a FreeBSD flavor for desktop use, easy enough for the average user, but still powerful and safe as FreeBSD. It contains a graphical install which configures X and installs KDE.

As if that was not enough, these guys have made an easy install system, which is just like you install something in windows (Next-Next-Finish). They have a pretty good repository and they keep adding stuff there.

Of course its free (released under the BSD licence). So any of you that wanted to try FreeBSD but got scared once you saw the installer here you go:

Making things simpler is always a step back. :D
Sounds nice but I'm quite sure OS X does this better (sadly not for free). :wink:
