PC-BSD 1.5 Brings BSD to the Desktop

There are those that have a hard time thinking about BSD as a desktop possibility.

It's just for servers right?

PC-BSD continues to prove otherwise with the latest PC-BSD 1.5 release.  This latest release is based on FreeBSD 6.3 (as opposed to the bleeding edge FreeBSD 7 branch) and includes improvements to the PBI  (Push Button Installer) toolset.

As always with PC-BSD, it uses the KDE desktop, this time rebased to KDE 3.5.8. (Again not the bleeding edge of development which would be  KDE 4.x,).

The 1.5 release follows the 1.4 (DaVinci release) by almost six months which is nearly three months less than the nine months between 1.4 and the 1.3 release of January 2007.
