Following the heels of the successful Kubuntu effort, PC-BSD was created to offer both home and business desktop users a solid alternative to other systems available. PC-BSD aims to be user-friendly, especially in the area of software installation and management. Of course PC-BSD comes with a nice graphical installer which can also be used by other Free-BSD users to install the OS in a modern fashion.

"KDE is one of the most full-featured, easy to use window managers available today. The C++ / Qt language it is written in, makes the development of software very easy, and is well documented. Desktop users coming from other platforms like Windows® or Mac OS X®, will immediately feel right at home with the KDE interface. This is not to say that there are no other nice window managers available, but at this point we do not feel that they have the polish and breadth that KDE offers."
They also wish to preserve the integrity of the FreeBSD system, so that power users can enjoy the rock solid system that FreeBSD provides, as well as the wealth of technical information freely available online.
