FreeBSD is a UNIX-style OS. It is used by many ISPs world wide. Like any 
other UNIX-style OS, the OS itself is not graphical, but it comes with an 
implementation of the X-Windows system, which is a graphical windowing 
system. It is very different in design and philosophy from Win95/NT, and, 
like most other UN*X OSs has a pretty steep learning curve. If you are 
going to use it, be prepared to read a lot, learn a lot, and inavadibly, 
make a lot of mistakes (initially).
