I used to have a FreeBSD 6.x workstation, but due to some HDD failures I had to rebuild the desktop machine.

My current (main) desktop is an OpenSUSE 10.3, and my second one is a PC-BSD.

I chose SUSE/PC-BSD over bare FreeBSD mainly because I didn't want to spend allot of time configuring & compiling things as I used to.

Currently I still have 2 unused 160GB HDD's
(the new ones I got from Seagate as a replacement for the dead ones)

The final idea is to revive my old configuration :

SATA HDD1 160GB: PC-BSD 7.0 main desktop
SATA HDD2 160GB: data drive (documents, pictures, mp3, etc..)
PATA HDD3 80GB: Eperimental. Lnx partitions, FreeBSD7 'bleeding edge' partition, etc...
PATA HDD4 40GB: Backup drive for daily/weekly backups, burned to DVD 2 times a year.
