PC-BSD Rolls Into A Rolling Release Distribution
Phoronix: PC-BSD Rolls Into A Rolling Release Distribution
PC-BSD, the popular desktop FreeBSD-based operating system that's rather friendly towards conventional end-users, has now become a rolling release platform...
And it features preconfigured pkgng repositories. Finally, the "apt" clone works like a charm!
To reiterate what I said in the post I made before, they're not transitioning to a rolling release model, but rather offering it as an option next to their stable releases.
Much like what Linux Mint does with LMDE.
Linux Mint and LMDE are not the same system. LMDE is a Debian-based distribution, Linux Mint is Ubuntu-based. Like CentOS is not Fedora.
I understand the technical differences between LM and LMDE, I was just pointing out that they aren't fully 'transitioning' to a rolling release model and using an example that many people here would be aware of.
Either way, it's a welcome addition that I hope will make PC-BSD more appealing to desktop users.
Keep dreaming, PCBSD looks like nothing more then a desperate bit by a dying project to attract more users which is clearly not working. Why?

-PBI system is a headache compared to the package managment of Linux systems, literally a step back
-PCBSD is harder to use (GUI managment tools often crash or just don't work)
-PCBSD only works on some hardware (Only some x86s).
-Even on the right platform, most people find that X cannot run at installation time or after installation. Sometimes, PCBSD would not even boot at all.
-A new version of PCBSD often doesn't boot on hardware that supported an older release. (And BSD fucks claim that updating is safer on thier crap) see:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd2JwtjOohY
-Many problems on PCBSD are due to FreeBSD but On FreeBSD fourms, they said they are not going to answer any questions on PCBSD. see: http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=7290
-And lost of other problems
BSD fucks say that PCBSD is getting better. But from less bais sources, PCBSD has actually been getting worse.
Bet no. of users on PCBSD has actually been declining thats why they have been trying to advertise more by conferences and stupid ads.

Great, so BSD is going rolling-release. Sacrificing stability, crashing even more and shitting more then ever.
Oh well, at least now they can't talk about being stable and reliable (bullshit).
Oh look, our Linsux loser kid has a new name, trying to mock those who can't read too well.
Have you ever worked with apt-get?
