    asus.comI’m sorry, but as a pure PC-BSD user I don’t really understand what this means. Will PC-BSD and FreeBSD fuse into one and the same? (sure, I know that the base in PC-BSD is FreeBSD)

    What will happen to PC-BSD? Will I be able to recognise it? And will I be able to keep on using the KDE desktop? I’ve tested Lumina, but I’m not sure if I agree with it.

    These are probably stupid questions, but I’ve poor knowledge on command lines in FreeBSD. I also actually liked when the updates started to come more rarely, like once a month, since every update makes me a little insecure like: “What will happen this time? Will it crash? Will I need to get newer hardware? Etc”.

    I get flashbacks to when I in May/June tried to install PC-BSD onto an older laptop and the GUI kept on crashing until I found out how to keep the FreeBSD base system on 10.2 and update PC-BSD to 10.3.
    You can read about the struggle here (post #14 and back) https://forums.pcbsd.org/thread-20739-post-114445.html

    I just ordered a new mini laptop https://www.asus.com/Notebooks/X102BA since my old one (Packard Bell DOT S 32 bit) can’t handle PC-BSD and I don’t want to use Windows anymore. I just hope it will work, its CPU is a little weak but I’ll replace the HDD for a SSD before I even try to install anything.
