[PLUG] Linux vs. PC-BSD as a desktop OS?

I've been using linux as a desktop OS since 2002, Debian stable since 
Woody.  Periodically, I read things about how great the BSDs are. 
PC-BSD seems to be a "distro" of FreeBSD, aimed at filling the desktop 
role.  The reviews tend to focus on the iffy ease-of-use of KDE4, rather 
than the overall usability and maintainability of the system (I'm a KDE3 
user so I guess I'll face this sooner or later anyway).

Has anyone used PC-BSD or FreeBSD as a desktop?  Any major pluses or 
minuses vs. Debian?  This isn't really linux so maybe it's better kept 
off-list.  Thanks,
