The following article was obviously written by a linux guy, and  
overall he gives it a thumbs up. There isn't anything earth  
shattering in the article from a typical BSD user's perspective, but  
linux users who read might be persuaded to give it a go.


Once a distro goes into beta 3, most of the major choices are in  
place. In looking at the 3rd testing versions of distributions, one  
can get a fairly good idea of what a distro might be like once it's  
released. The only experience I've had with a BSD clone or derivative  
was with my PC-BSD review some months ago. That install was as simple  
as 1, 2, 3... or click, click, click. I'd heard the horror stories  
about other BSD installs, yet downloaded 6.0 beta 3 with hope. Was  
this going to be a brain-burning, hair-pulling, data-losing  
proposition? What happened with my attempted FreeBSD 6.0 Beta 3 install?
