I've been using PC-BSD/TrueOS since Isotope 9.
Then you saw my postings at their discourse forum last summer or thereabouts when I gave TrueOS a test drive. If not, it would be far more effective to read it yourself than for me to blab on about it. They speak for themselves.
However, there's still one burning question in my mind....
Can you now Copy to/Move to transfer files using the Lumina desktop file manager menu? Because if you can't, we have little left to discuss as far as functional desktops with TrueOS and mine in the same sentence. Pix or it didn't happen.
You also need to look at the team members: I believe one of the Moore brothers is a current Core Team member, and Dru Lavigne is legendary.
Dru Lavigne has all my respect. She was around then but I do not know her personally.
She responded to a post of mine once and was very polite. It was a very important post about how their implementation of a firewall GUI broke pf syntax. Thus, nobody using it had a working firewall.
Except me, far as I know. I showed them nmap scans as proof it was broken and how to fix it. Nobody seemed to know frijoles about firewalls, or care, but I am sure beyond any shadow of doubt Ms. Lavigne understands them fully. Problem was, it took a month to get any response.
One of the Moore brothers was active in the PC-BSD forums in the beginning and a pretty nice guy. I spoke to him on a few occasions it seems, but can't remember which one it was. I believe it was him who asked why I was using ports instead of the .pbi installer. I finally got a response to my pf issue from one of them too, after Ms. Lavigne's IIRC, but that was far past the point of reason, and by that time so was I. Oko remembers my rants.
