I'm working on a outline of making FreeBSD a useful desktop. It's
aimed at those who have told me face-to-face so many times that they'd
love to try out a BSD, but have so many basic functions that aren't
fulfilled by BSD on a desktop.
It may become a meaty piece of documentation for our documentation
project, or maybe a serialized piece in Daemon News, or who knows what.
I'd appreciate any input anyone has in terms of their favorite X
packages to run. . .and using which window manager. I'm not going to
cover Gnome or KDE environments, but rather focus on XFCE, FVWM, MLVWM,
WindowMaker, etc. . .
I'd love to hear some input, particularly for those running a BSD
desktop. . .this includes Dan's love for xplanet, etc. . .useful for
end-user tasks and/or just fun.
Thanks. . .
