    Default Bloat

    Are PBI's still bloated as all hell? I've never had much luck with PC-BSD, all their home grown applications for managing it have been buggy, bordering on useless.

    Maybe because you didn't care to troubleshoot it in the first place.

    I've had no problem with the configuration application or the size of PBI files. The only issue that the control panel currently has is that it forces the user to reboot to change resolution or screen orientation, whereas it can occur without one using KDE's or Gnome's own tools. I imagine this issue has more to do with the recent adoption of KMS drivers and the control panel hasn't been updated.

    This is my biggest issue with it from the last time I used it. Other than that the OS was very functional, I was rather surprised
