[pc/free]bsd *can* be used as a desktop system, but it's really aimed 
more at servers... a lot of common desktopy things aren't covered well. 
Based on the wording of your question it sounds like you're new to 
non-windows systems. I'd suggest you look into some flavor of linux 
instead (eg; "ubuntu" or "mint"): they'll be geared more towards what 
you'd be looking for I think.

Why not PC-BSD?  Easy to install and has a great looking and functional desktop.

Best regards,
