    I don't suppose any security software is really necessary for a home computer running it... but if you've got advice I'll take it.

    I'd like to find the nix alternatives to Digsby/Pidgin and a coretemp like program.

    Anything else I should know?

    PC-BSD is the most user-friendly version of BSD, I have it myself.

    For IMs, I've only found these: Sim-IM, Asterisk, and BSFilte. I believe the online ones like Meebo work fine.

    I think coretemp is in FreeBSD already. There's also Healthd.
