PC-BSD 7 was recently released, and with it comes a whole slew of updates and upgrades. Some of the highlights include:

  • Updated to FreeBSD 7-STABLE for the base
  • Updated KDE to 4.1.1
  • Improved support and stability for Wine.
  • Added additional ATH wifi device support
  • Updated USB install to support FAT formatted USB sticks

  • For those of you who may not have heard of PC-BSD, here’s their brief description of the OS:

    PC-BSD is a free operating system with ease of use in mind. Like any modern system, you can listen to your favorite music, watch your movies, work with office documents and install your favorite applications with a setup wizard at a click.

    With FreeBSD at its core, and KDE as the Window Manager, PC-BSD is both stable and easy to use. There’s no shortage of available software either.

    The installation is quite straight forward, and they have a very detailed guide to get you started. The guide also includes steps on how to burn the .ISO in Windows and OS X, as well as how to install PC-BSD as a virtual machine using VirtualBox (so you can try it out before you completely install it on your PC).
