Welcome to FreeBSD. With FreeBSD you can have whatever graphical user
interface you want, just the same as with some customizable GNU/Linux
distros. The diference is that you need to learn how to do it. The
FreeBSD Handbook on line (and on your ready installed system) is one of
the best manuals I have ever seen. Take a look at it and study it, then
I suggest you to try first an easy Linux distro like Mandrake. Be there
some time till you get confortable. Then switch to somethink more
difficult like Debian, where you can install and uninstall packages and
learn how a system works. After some time on Debian you will be ready to
enter the FreeBSD world without trouble.
Switching from Red Crap to FreeBSD is a bit hard, in my opinion.
You will be welcome.
