i am a semi-noob when it comes to linux, bsd is a whole new world, i had to leave it. although i think that i will most likely revisit PC-BSD in the future, when it is more mature (its only version 0.7 right now). It has lots of potential. Unlike other *nix systems, it has the same concept as Windows or Mac OS when it comes to installing software. All the programs are installed via a script that automatically installs the program, and the dependancies to 1 folder, so its all there, no soup of tangled dependancies. The installer is much like the installers used for windows, and just like in windows there is a "Program Files" folder where all the programs, and dependancies go. It came with KDE, i am a bigger gnome fan. And lastly, no matter what I tried, ethernet worked, wifi didn't, and these days its all about the wifi. And actually, one more thing, there is no such thing as a BSD ATi driver...and i need one of those thing.
