PC-BSD 11 is a Unix-like, complete desktop-oriented operating system based on FreeBSD, which has been designed with the “casual” computer user in mind. Like any modern system, you can listen to your favorite music, watch your movies, work with office documents and install your favorite applications with a setup wizard at a click. PC-BSD 11 offers the stability and security that only a BSD-based operating system can bring, while as the same time providing a comfortable user experience, allowing you to get the most out of your computing time. With PC-BSD 11 you can spend less time working to fix viruses or spyware and instead have the computer work for you. Installing the system is simply a matter of a few clicks and a few minutes for the installation process to finish.
Hardware such as video, sound, network and other devices will be auto-detected and available at the first system startup.Home users will immediately feel comfortable with PC-BSD’s desktop interface, with KDE running under the hood. Software installation has also been designed to be as painless as possible, simply double-click and software will be installed.
Since October 10, 2006 PC-BSD has been supported by the enterprise-class hardware solution provider iXsystems. In November 2007, iXsystems entered into a distribution agreement with Fry’s Electronics whereby Fry’s Electronics stores nationwide carry boxed copies of PC-BSD version 1.4 (Da Vinci Edition).
