PC-BSD is a desktop distribution based on FreeBSD. The latest stable release, PC-BSD 8.2, was made available for public download last month. This article presents a review of this latest release.
Installation: The installer offers several boot methods. The default is to boot directly into the graphical installation program. There is also a Live Mode option. During several test installations I made using the boot-only CD, choosing he Live Mode option still booted into the install mode. And in a few instances when attempting to start installation from a full DVD image in Live Mode, the Install icon failed to start.
