9.0-BETA2/i386 from the latest test release
In my private opinion we should seriously consider enabling SC_PIXEL_MODE by default in FreeBSD or, in the worst case, making it a tunable.
Not being able to see 'ps axuw' (on 80x25 console) is inconvenient.
For test setups / working in VirtualBox/VMWare VMs, it would be beneficial
to be able to increase the resolution just a bit to get something functional.
In the ideal case I could get a system where vidcontrol(8) can change a graphics modes.
