PC-BSD 9.1

I downloaded PC-BSD 9.1.  It came with KDE 4.8.4 Gnome 2.32.2, LXDE 0.5.9 and XFCE 4.10. The DVD finally came with a Radeon driver.  It's installer streamlined paritioning so you can check mark GPT partition which is a lot simpler than in PC-BSD 9.0.   There is a bug in the paritioner where it will only recognize Linux partitions and NTFS.  You'd have to first resize in Windows than partition free space to EXT4 in Gparted.

I also have wonderful news, installing PC-BSD 9.1 no longer screws up Windows 7 partitions during installs and I no longer need installation DVD to fix the partition. That's a big plus.

The  large PBI installers that worked in PC-BSD 9.0 are compatible with 9.1. I have Firefox 10, Libreoffice 3.4.5, Wine 1.3, Dia, and Opera 11.01.
