I see, my bad then. Might be that you were just stating that you're not
using Gnome, or KDE, or something along the line and it left a wrong
fingerprint in my memory. That's why I said that I'm not really sure.

Still, if that's the case, I wonder how your ports experience in that
regard could be so good. And substituting a full desktop environment for
like xorg+twm+vi doesn't count as a desktop in my book :)

(Ok, just trolling. But who knows...)
