Great article! I like seeing articles like this one. I'm always interested in different OS flavors and what they have to offer. I tested out several before finally curling up with Ubuntu.


The article really doesn't compare the PC-BSD to Ubuntu, though. There were a couple of mentions, but no real comparison. It was more of a, "This is what PC-BSD has to offer". Also, it probably should have been compared to Kubuntu instead of Ubuntu (since PC-BSD runs KDE), though it probably wouldn't have made much of a difference.


I'm definitely going to check out PC-BSD. I have to say, however, I'm not much of a KDE fan. :-( (even though I've used Windows up until February).

    See my blog (http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/unix/bsd") for some of the reasons why I didn't compare PC-BSD with Kubuntu in this article. That, and the fact that most *ubuntu users are familiar with the Gnome interface and wouldn't recognize the Kubuntu screens or the KDE utilities.
