PC BSD and Desktop BSD
From what I can tell in my quick scanning of the topic titles in this thread, most people who have tried out a BSD have been working with FreeBSD. If you are looking for a really easy way to use a BSD, and specifically FreeBSD as your desktop OS, take a look at the PC BSD and Desktop BSD projects. Both are based on recent vintage FreeBSD 6.0+, but they provide an easy installation path, better hardware detection than straight FreeBSD and a quicker path to a usable desktop. PC BSD also attempts to provide automatic software updates if you want them. I recommend PC BSD in particular if you are interested in using BSD as an every day desktop and you don't already have a Mac (which runs MacOS X, a proprietary implementation of a commercial BSD operating system with NetBSD and FreeBSD roots).Brian Masinick

I've never really used BSD from what I can tell it's basically like using Linux except having different bragging rights. I was thinking about installing NetBSD on my Debian server in my basement to play around with it.
