I'd say either link to FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD from this article, and write articles about each of those (don't make those pages redirect here), or don't link to them. --Larry Sanger 12:47, 7 April 2007 (CDT)

Gotcha, and I unlinked them. The only reason I did that was I know I've seen articles linking to the BSDs and I'd like to drum up interest in people editing them, by first getting them here. The total lack of Computers authors is killing me.. it seems like there are about 3 of us active on CZ :( --Eric M Gearhart 13:18, 7 April 2007 (CDT)

Hey, maybe it's interesting to say something about PC-BSD (http://www.pcbsd.org/), i tried it once and it worked pretty fine. Another variant is the DesktopBSD (http://www.desktopbsd.net/) which was defenitely not ready when i tried it (about one year ago). These are free BSD distributions for desktop-users that are not IT-specialists, maybe a fine introduction to the UNIX world for some people.
