Hi all,

Well, over the past few days I have made the transition to FreeBSD (6.4) 
as the primary OS on my home computer. I am currently running GNOME as a 
desktop, and it seems to be running well. Indeed, I am using Thunderbird 
to write this email!

I have a couple of questions regarding the transition:

1. Does there exist a port or package, a messenger program, that is 
compatible with Windoze Live Messenger? i.e. can I log in similar to 
live messenger and see my contacts and collaborate with them?

2. Can I use any type of pictures for the desktop wallpaper? Where might 
I find some good wallpaper depicting the FreeBSD Daemon and Logo?

3. How does one add a device to the desktop as an icon? i.e. an external 
USB drive?
