I was wondering how soon somebody would point that out. Technically its 
built on FreeBSD 7-Stable, but right now 7-Stable identifies itself as 
7.1Prerelease, so we're trying to figure out about the versioning. We 
may stick with "7" then, after FreeBSD 7.1 is released, and we work on 
the next cut of PC-BSD, we'll base it on 7.1-Stable, and rename it to 
PC-BSD 7.1 as well.
