In PC-BSD, software is divided into PBIs, meta-packages, and package sets:
 
 
* '''PBIs''' are single applications, such as web browsers or multimedia utilities. PBIs are installed and managed using [[Using_AppCafe® | AppCafe®]] and [[Update Manager]] will automatically notify you when newer versions of installed PBIs become available. 
 
 
* '''Meta-packages''' are installable software collections and can be considered as system components.  Meta-packages are selected during installation and include supported and unsupported desktops, development utilities, hardware drivers, and miscellaneous applications such as MythTV or XBMC. After installation, your initial meta-packages choices can be modified using [[System_Manager#Install.2FUninstall_Desktops_and_System_Components | System Manager]]. [[Warden®]] also supports meta-packages, allowing you to install system components into a jail.
 
 
* '''Package sets''' include the default packages that get installed with any PC-BSD system, plus the meta-packages which are selected for installation by the user.
