Final Thoughts and Recommendations: Like Sabayon Linux, PC-BSD has all the features needed to make an excellent desktop distribution. And just like Sabayon, it is still rough around the edges. I think it is going to take at least two more releases before it is going to be ready for prime time. But that should not discourage anybody, new or inexperienced users included, from take it for a spin. It has several features that are not available on any Linux distribution. ZFS is one. Packet Filter (PF) is another. Sure, Linux has IPTables/Netfilter, but PF rules are a lot more fun and easier to write than IPTables rules.
Note: You can learn more from distributions like PC-BSD and Sabayon than some of the more polished ones.
