PC-BSD 9.0 on its Way

Filed under
BSD

testPC-BSD is the Ubuntu of the free BSD world. It features an easy install (similar to Anaconda), with a nice default system, and usually gives no reason to fiddle under the bonnet. Version 9.0 is currently in development and Beta 2 was recently released.

PC-BSD ships as an install DVD or a much smaller live DVD. This release is said to include the most recent changes found in FreeBSD 9.0-BETA2. Some of the newest goodies include the NVIDIA driver at install, KDE 4.6.5, and a draft of the new PC-BSD 9 handbook. FreeBSD 9.0 will bring things like USB 3.0 support, Userland DTrace, and 4K sector drive support.
