I run FreeBSD and KDE (all from SVN trunk) on all my laptops and netbooks.
I have no windows at home, and the exceptions to FreeBSD are my wife's
laptop (runs Ubuntu) and all mobile devices of my family (all Ubuntu
too).

And, speaking as a software developer, things which can not be done
with the tools provided by FreeBSD and its ports collection, perhaps are 
not worth to do.
