I used to run my home firewall on a PC with FreeBSD, but, as you
found with Linux, the initial setup was non-trivial.
Currently I'm using pfSense on an old Pentium III box I had
sitting around. I still get the benefits of pf, but with a web
based configuration tool (can be configured for HTTP or HTTPS).
The only feature I miss from my old setup is DansGuardian, and
I'm looking into packaging that for pfSense myself.
