    Well I got SuSE home 8.1 a few years ago & now I have OpenSuSE 10. I like it accept the way you install software outside YaST, & PC-BSD has .PBI files which is basicly like a windows setup.exe file. That sounds great to me, I have 56k though, can't get broadband only source a hill blocks it. :mad:
