Good news for the fans of DekstopBSD

Good! Even though I've never used it, it always saddens me when a project (ANY project) dies out of lack of "resources".

But unfortunately we only have 1 man army
Wasn't it already a one man army in the past?
 
Even if I've never tried it, I'm happy about that.
I'm just wondering why DesktopBSD and PCBSD are both using KDE.
Could it be somehow counterproductive?
I think that their target user are desktop user. I know that they have peculiar features but I'm wondering if they are somehow stepping on their feet and not reaching users which don't like KDE.

Maybe because their creators like KDE and don`t care about others?

I`m just wondering why there are both DesktopBSD and PCBSD at all? Wouldn`t it be more productive to join forces and build one better desktop-oriented BSD?
 
-different goals in the past (no PBIs for DesktopBSD and as close as possible to FreeBSD)
-DesktopBSD was first
-Gnome was more or less a pain in the backside to support in the past; today it's a different story thanks to Miwi and others
-furthermore Peter likes KDE ;-)

>Wasn't it already a one man army in the past?

Yes. I was in the team but for user support, tests, PR, the wiki etc. together with Daniel Seuffert. But Peter did the development on its own.
