PC-BSD 9.2 Is An Exciting Upgrade
Phoronix: PC-BSD 9.2 Is An Exciting Upgrade
One week after the FreeBSD 9.2 release that brought ZFS TRIM and LZ4 compression support, updates to DTrace, and kernel changes, there's now the release of PC-BSD 9.2. This release is quite exciting as besides pulling in the FreeBSD 9.2 packages the desktop-friendly operating system has some new changes of its own...
I wonder how PKGNG will behave when used in addition to AppCafe and PBI's.
Going to give it a try!

1: The BSD license is certified open-source, and Richard Stallman agrees that BSD licensed software is free software. Additionally, so great is his agreement, that GNU ncurses is BSD licensed.
2: KMS is new to the BSDs. As for Nouveau, it should probably be ported in time. For now the nViDiA proprietary driver is quite adequate.
3: Are you sure? Compared to what? I've not found any reason to complain.
4: What's a 'modern acpi'? And I believe PC-BSD tends to run on most modern computers. I've yet to see one it fails on.
5: What on earth does 'just behind' mean? I agree that there is some lack of wireless drivers. However wireless and sound do work fine in general.
6: Is this true? Perhaps you could cite a source. And you'll need to do better than just one or two devs-- I want to see a majority if your statement is to be believed. Good luck.
