*BSD screenshots


Linux gets all the glory, so I thought I'd start a *BSD screenshot thread. Granted, most BSD users are probably running servers rather than desktop systems, but what the heck.

So, here is my OpenBSD 5.4 Xfce desktop...

Finally got OpenBSD 5.4 set up on the ThinkPad T61, messing around with tmux and such...

Linux has no GUI, nor does *BSD.
There is Xorg that runs on these platforms (and on many others). There are Window Managers and even Desktop Environments that run on Xorg (or some other X).
Here is my screenshot, it doesn't matter what is running underneath. GNU/Linux, Mac OS-X, BSD ...

Yeah, well I think anyone who can install and set-up a BSD with a DE/WM knows this. Thanks for the education I suppose.
Nice desktop by the way.
Older screenshot here. FreeBSD 6.3.

Well, yes. The default for Linux and the BSDs is TUI. Frankly, I'd rather be running a VESA framebuffer console on OpenBSD, but that isn't an option (FreeSBD and NetBSD do have this option). I'm considering stripping out all GTK dependencies and sticking with cwm, if I can configure it to my liking.

What are the advantages of using a BSD?

Oh, I don't know about advantages. I'm into OpenBSD mostly for the security/clean code focus. From a very lightweight base system I can tinker around and build the system I want.

Some interesting info, perhaps:

Yep. It is nice to run one of the most secure operating systems in the World. Learning about the BSDs is an enjoyable experience.

Is it safe but it is not annoyingly safe to use, right?
EDIT: I am reading the links you posted and, from what I know, Linux kernel also has a team to decide what goes into it, no?

1) Not in the least! I have full desktop functionality with OpenBSD on my T61, the same as with Slackware, at least for what I need. It took a little longer to set up than Slackware, but only because it's pretty new to me.

2) Probably, I really don't keep up with those things.

It's been a lot of fun, having to figure out how to do things. As a Slackware user, you should do just fine.
