I will try portsnap, and read about the pkgdb database. If all these
tools ultimately resolve to pkgdb, I will try to learn about that.
I have tried PC-BSD, and look forward to version 9.0. I really don't
like KDE, though. I hear some rumblings about a Gnome developer
wanting to drop BSD support, so maybe I better start liking KDE.
PC-BSD seems to have done a great job reproducing the way Mac's
install software, by using self-contained bundles (PBI's). And next
version of PBI is supposed to not need a GUI. I'm sure I will be
trying the next version PC-BSD. Hopefully to be released soon.
