Installed and detected hardware perfectly on a Dell T5610 Precision Workstation... probably the best OOB install I've ever experienced with any BSD, and I've been using BSD since the early 1990's.

It detected my Nvidia card and installed an appropriate driver, easily set resolution to 1920x1080.

My ONLY issue is the silly 'kindergarten' flat UI look of OpenBox, and it's lack of GUI crispness.

Team NomadBSD should use XFCE as the default.

I've installed NomadBSD to the hard drive on my 6 year old Inspiron 15 i3, and it runs awesomely. Now that I've gotten used to BSD, I prefer it. The entire desktop is more responsive and the graphics are much crisper. I tried some other BSDs, and this one wins for being the easiest to use.

Like most, the biggest problem I have with BSD is the wifi. It goes out in the middle of package installation and I'm hosed. When I asked for help, I got the rtfm/no noobs allowed respose that's a hallmark of BSD. And according to their manual, my wifi is not supported.
But I don't think bsd has a wifi problem so much as it has a router problem. It doesn't configure modern multi-band routers correctly. Once I figured out that I had to configure each channel separately... Using the wifi network manager, select 'show all networks', and my ssid, 'cthulhu' shows up several times. I set the password and activate each one (I never have to do that on linux or windows). Now it works all the time. So much for rtfm (when I was young, Unix was an exclusive club for middle age white guys obsessed with job security. The culture hasn't changed much).

Generally speaking, BSD is it's own punishment. The devil is in the configuration details. NomadBSD lets me set the configuration in the live-usb, and that configuration, as well as any software I've installed there, will migrate to my hard drive when I install the os. I'm a developer, so I re-install the os frequently. But less often than I had to with Linux, and the unique live usb gets me back up and running faster.

NomadBSD can't detect Atheros QCA6174 wifi adapter and ELAN touchpad. Other than that, it definitely a solid BSD up to run on daily computer tasks. If you want to use it from persistent USB stick live, just keep the packages at minimum to maximize the performance.
