Windows Compatibility?

Hi Augusto,

Build yourself a FreeBSD box on modern hardware with Xorg, and KDE or
Gnome and you won't regret it.  There are remote desktop and vnc utils
to get to a windows box for using windowscentric apps, they work great
and are hassle free.  I'll bet in a year's time, that windows box
doesn't even get turned on anymore.  FreeBSD is a pleasure to use, and
the learning curve is not THAT great, especially with this mailing
list, and if you're motivated.  Do yourself a favor.

Good luck,
