PC-BSD Day 30: The verdict

,----[ Quote ]
| Does PC-BSD have the potential to be a serious contender for the open source
| desktop? I answered that question with a yes, because the potential is there.
| The solid FreeBSD roots, the very strong and very accessible information, the
| friendly and mature community and the PBI system provide the foundations for
| that potential. I don't think it is ready now and I couldn't recommend it yet
| to someone in the early stages of moving away from Windows to an open source
| desktop. But I do think that the PC-BSD team has the right target audience in
| mind and is building an system and a support system that addresses it's
| needs.
