PC-BSD and FreeBSD, plus all the BSD's are rock solid!
The FreeBSD package manager and the NetBSD package manager are both
Pc-BSD is a total no brainer to install, Windows users love it, and
underneath it's just freeBSD anyway, and one can install any packages they
like via the FreeBSD package manager. The native Pc-BSD package manager is
just there for ex Windows users ;-)
The BSDs are all very similar to Linux to use and admin, and it can be hard
at first glance to tell them apart.
