I agree with Graeme's previous post.
How do you expect newcomers to understand highly technical sentences like "enter full pathname of shell or return for /bin/sh"? What is easy for advanced users is impossible for new users to understand in any way!
I will be sticking with PC-BSD, but I won't be using it too often. There are too many little annoyances - which I hope will be fixed as PC-BSD becomes popular. For example, when I first plugged my headphones in, the sound would not work, so I had to Google the problem and put some cryptic commands into the Terminal. Not very user-friendly, but I'm optimistic that PC-BSD will soon automatically switch between sound outputs.
Ubuntu used to have odd and non-user friendly methods, which have slowly improved and I have stuck with Ubuntu. Let's hope PC-BSD can be very easy for everyone to use, including people who know very little about computers. ALWAYS assume that a computer user doesn't know what they're doing, that's the secret.
