My experience with PC-BSD was that it was just different enough to
break alot of FreeBSD's documentation, and they don't have enough of
their own.  I was a newbie, of course, but I went with vanilla FreeBSD
because of the handbook and freebsd-questions, and I've no regrets.
Been at least 9 months.  Course I like to hack.
