Please note that the original posting contains a hidden claim that
window$ is a perfect, eternal and god-given desktop system. Therefore
if you say that FreeBSD will never be a "perfectly acceptable
alternative..." to that, you agree with that hidden claim.

window$ as a desktop system is as wrong as it is as an "operating
system". In my opinion, FreeBSD set up as a desktop system is what a
desktop system should be, so FreeBSD with GUI apps _is_
-- or can be if you want -- a "perfect desktop system".=20

Or: "perfect desktop system" has nothing to do with m$'s approach.

To Latitude: if you can't accept this ^^^, then don't switch.
