I am "ok" with linux - newer to it but fairly technical. This system looks awesome, but I wanted a bit of info.
I like the idea of PC-BSD and love kde 4. I want to make a major switch from windows and have been using linux primarily for a couple months but I have done some unix work off/on for a few months.
I don't know the command line that well but want to really get good at it. I am looking for a system that will allow me to get off windoze and get onto linux/unix. I like MACs but wouldn't buy one, can't afford it
How much is the command line used in PC-BSD for installing packages like apt-get in debian?
How is the wireless support for a dell laptop with a broadcom b4312 card, video for an intel integrated card and dual monitors? The laptop is 1280x800 default and the external is 1440x900
My biggest other need is virtual support to host either virtual box or vmworkstation?
THen I have an IPHONE and would love to sync up to a calendar of some sort?
I would like to learn the NIX world and not just point/click and don't mind at all putting time in!
I have tried ubuntu, linux mint, (they both seem to easy and not great), crunchbang - fast but missing alot, sabayon I was going to try - but didn't want to get involved compiling a ton of stuff
I do have to work on this laptop daily and can deal with some headaches, but can't be offline entirely
