After a few clicks and creating an administrator password, you are practically set to use PCBSD. Installation times will vary depending on your computer specs, but overall it was quite speedy.

The desktop itself is quite sleek with a nice desktop image with a few links on how to use PCBSD as well as one to download and install programs. What makes PCBSD friendly is that they have developped a package (software) manager that basically works.
