I've also been very interested in PC-BSD, but as with Ceri, I've not yet had a
chance to give it a try (just got back from a month trip in India a couple of
days ago, which is a good excuse for something :-). I'm very interested by
the recent high levels of interest in wrapping FreeBSD in something friendly
and useful -- FreeSBIE, PC-BSD, DesktopBSD, etc. This is something that I'd
hope to see happen for a long time, and I've been wondering whether it was
just a lucky turn of events that it's been happening all at once, or if
something in particular has facilitated this happening. There's certainly a
large niche for doing this.
Any chance we'll see you at the UKUUG spring conference in March? If Sam
hasn't yet tricked you into giving a talk on PC-BSD, maybe you should drop him
