I second that.  Then again, I have installed(read (toyed with") X maybe 3 times
since 3.2 to determine viability as a desktop environment, then elected to pass
on it for a corporate environment.  Placed everyone on Win2k simply from a
support/learning curve for users rational.  Tech support is cheaper as well
(multitude of MCSomethingOrOthers out there who can at least do basic win
support).  Using a non MS platorm on workstations simply because it isn't MS
isn't a good reason IMO.

That being said, my win2k destop seldom has less than 4 SecureCRT terminal
windows open to the various servers...

Of the 20 some odd servers I manage with freebsd on it, none have X simply
because it is't needed from a server pov.  Personally, FreeBSD is a great server
platform as is, leave X (et al) as an option.
