Submission + - PC-BSD Release (pcbsd.org)

PuceBaboon writes: It's worth noting that, in addition to the main FreeBSD release covered here recently, PC-BSD has also released their "Isotope" edition, based on FreeBSD 9.0. Why would you be interested? Well, PC-BSD, while not the first, is certainly the most current version of FreeBSD aimed squarely at the desktop user. Pre-configured for the desktop and using a graphical installer, the 9.0 release includes KDE, GNOME, XFCE and LXDE desktop environments, an update manager, WiFi "quick connect", BootCamp support and auto-configuration for most common hardware. Live-CD, VirtualBox and VMware release images for 32 and 64 bit architectures also make it easier than ever before for users to test the release before committing to a full install. Check out the torrents (scroll down), main download page and the PC-BSD 9.0 manual pages.
