    I use it as primary desktop OS. For few months, I've been forced to use Windows because World of Warcraft :D But otherwise I have all my work etc in FreeBSD.

    And as desktop os, I ofc have gui on it; I'm using Openbox+fbpanel combo.

    nice. have you gotten 3d acceleration working with freebsd?

    what work do you do on the desktop ?

    btw, i run fluxbox on my notebook and no gui on the server. i use the notebook to access the server as it doesnt have a monitor/keyboard attached.

    Sure, pretty easy with NVIDIA. For long, I had problems getting AGP working with newer drivers, but I located a fix from NVNews forums (from official NVIDIA developer), although he said the fix might not be stable, I haven't had any problems.

    Whatever people do with computer (exept for playing); surfing Internet, chatting, listening music, watching movies / tv series etc.. Or, I sure have played some games too, Enemy Territory, FretsOnFire and some Quake mods for example.

    Thread moved to clubs :).

    And guys, stop censoring your posts, censoring is seriously more annoying than saying porn.

    hey, you guys used any vnc software for freebsd? i was able to install tightvnc (vncviewer/vncserver) onto my bsd box. then i was able to install it on my windows box. i successfully accessed windows from bsd which was pretty damn cool! however when i did a routine bsd reboot i tried to login to x and it gave me an .Xauthority message. now i think it has something to do with vnc as vnc sets up X in a way that it access the xorg server. just curious. btw, you guys should give this a try cause its pretty freaking sweet!
