Interview With Kris Moore, PC-BSD Lead Developer
By Amjith Ramanujam, submitted by vijayd81 on 2008-08-26 23:31:09
"Not all user-friendly desktop operating systems are based on Linux; as demonstrated by PC-BSD, it is entirely feasible to turn a "geek" project into a piece of software that can be installed and used by even less technical computer users. Distrowatch talks to Kris Moore, PC-BSD lead developer, about his love affair with FreeBSD and the upcoming PC-BSD 7.0."


  • KDE 4.1 as default desktop for PC-BSD 7
  • ZFS is introduced and it can be enabled during installation
The package installation was something that piqued my interest. Download a single .pbi file and double-click to install the package, no dependencies or repositories to worry about. This is something that Windows and OS X users will be familiar with.

I am looking forward to the release of the new version, and I am definitely giving it a try.
