I have been a Linux user for a long time, but over the last year or so 
have been using either Open or Free BSD for all the servers I have to 
set up.  It's just so much cleaner.  

I'm still using Linux (Kubuntu, or Slackware) for my desktop machines, 
and am wondering if FreeBSD is an option for the desktop.  I need to 
run Audacity for instance, and would like to be able to view 
audio-video content on the web.  Has that been difficult for people to 
set up?
