Anyone into the Doors I really suggest reading 'Wonderland Avenue', its about a 12 yr old boy who becomes Jim Morrison's protégé. Later becomes the Doors manager, then lives with Iggy Pop (Iggy makes Jim Morrison look sane/boring). The front page was done by Ralph Steadman (so you know its going to be good..)

The advantages you mention are not really advantages for BSD over Linux.

i.e ZFS, most users will not care in the future thanks to BTRFS (which in some ways blows ZFS out the water), it is already the default FS in openSUSE

100% Os encryption is possibly now in Linux, Jails can be done in a container level.

Also regarding the installation of software see this plan for potentially what we will be using in the future (requires BTRFS) to install software - i.e the ability to never break the OS ...

Hardware support would have to also improve on BSD (i.e Nvidia/Ati) to be a contender.

As I have used Linux for a decade I cannot myself see any need to test BSD

(i'd prefer BSD over Windows however.)

+Luke Wolf Again im not sure that is right, I mean Unity is Linux based (I personally am not a fan of that desktop but at least its a company pushing the linux desktop, yes they also want to push the mobile/tablet versions with unity but there are still focused on the desktop) , gnome3+kde5 are Linuxcentric still at present, cinnamon is also Linuxcentirc (yes im aware there is a bsd version) - KDE5 is unarguably pushing the linux desktop forward regardless of distro - however I would argue that distros like kubuntu and opensuse are desktop focused (opensuse even has a kernel tuned for desktop usage...)

For more lightweight distros LXQT and E19 are again mainly linux focused (you may/maynot be able to get bsd versions)

What desktop features are PC-BSD pushing that desktop based distros are not?

Also have you seen that Fedora is now focusing on a 'workstation' version for desktops?  https://getfedora.org/en/workstation/ - although it uses gnome3 as default (which I personally hate - I use KDE)

Hi - really liking the look of LXLE 14.04.

However I cannot get the 32bit revisited .iso to boot at all on my Samsung n150 netbook... (which would be better due to low ram)

I have downloaded via torrent twice - if I dd the image to USB stick it doesn't boot at all (I have tried multiple usb sticks also) - using dd works fine with 14.04 iso.

 if I wipe the usb stick and make a vfat partition - then use the usb startup disk creator (from kubuntu) - I get the grub bootloader (missing when I use dd) however after  a few seconds I get

(Initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.sqashfs failed: Invalid argument
Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

How can I get the 32bit revisited iso to boot?

Kubuntu 13.10 is broken for UEFI installs. You will just get the grub2 cli after reinstall..

Which a really easy fix - you just need to copy the kubuntu folder in the efi directory to ubuntu.

I.e - install kubuntu - it won't be able to boot (just grub2 cli) - load up kubuntu live cd - mount the /efi partition then

sudo cp -rv /boot/efi/EFI/kubuntu /boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu

Will 'fix' it.

What happened to Q+A?

One word of warning - if you dual boot with ubuntu (why would you want to) you will get multiple UEFI entries that all load ubuntu - kubuntu is accessible via the 'ubuntu 13.10' entry in grub (what a mess).

I tried unity to see how things were going..

I'd say its like self harm at present.

Everytime you look for an application you spam yourself.

It really is a joke - I search for terminal in unity - dash found some Italian jazz or something similar.
