raiden.net: PC-BSD, a strong contender for the top desktop distribution out there, has once again grown, going from version 1.3 to 1.5 in just under a year. In that time it's grown, prospered, and had it's fair share of growing pains as well. But version 1.5 is only one subversion up from the previous version 1.4 that we reviewed. So what makes version 1.5 better than its predecessors and worth a look from us? Well, let's have a look.
