Hi, Eric, you helped with the overall picture.
Pkgng is clearly the wise choice.
I traveled around the forum a bit. There isn't any hurdle to receive any requested software.
I realized that simplicity isn't a bad thing. Functionality is paramount.
GhostBSD is a mature design. It is sensible not to complicate things at this stage.
The ports do have software aplenty. A rolling release is ideal, modern, and definitely more secure.
GhostBSD is the most forward moving FreeBSD out there, by far.
The rolling release will make me drop DesktopBSD as an all time favorite.
PC-BSD messed up with the ZFS only package. ZFS is too slow for most desktops, lack recovery tools, and despite it's improvements, is a resource hog.
Their network manager is unreliable and invites confusion.
They shot themselves in the ankles by not keeping it simple.
I mean, really, the sever enabled by default on a desktop?
Being a BSD based system, it , already, started out ahead of the game.
Must be careful for what one wish for, for it can upset reality.
I look forward to Pkgng.
I'm confident, now, that GhostBSD is headed down the right path.
Pkgng is ,clearly, the wise choice.
