no. all i want is to stop all stupid topics about:
- KDE/Gnome/other crap (or great things for somebody)
BECAUSE IT'S NOT PART OF FREEBSD. FreeBSD has nothing to this, except
KDE/Gnome/whatever can be run on it
- support of flash in Opera/Firefox/Whatever
again BECAUSE WWW BROWSER ARE NOT PART OF FREEBSD.
- support of new/hot (literally)/super/extra graphics cards from NVidia.
BECAUSE Xorg IS NOT PART OF FREEBSD.
While IMHO full graphics support (graphics support, not GUI) should be
part of kernel as driver, it isn't.
As NVidia card Xorg module does need some kernel wrapper (no idea why) -
then there is nothing wrong for interested people to write it as ADD
- asking about bloat level, visual apperance comparision etc. between
FreeBSD with KDE and Windoze.
because KDE ARE NOT PART OF FREEBSD, and FreeBSD on it's own doesn't have
(fortunately) any "desktop environment" so it can't be compared.
if someone like to compare KDE with windoze - OK but NOT THIS GROUP!
SO - please just stop ALL NTG topics here. this group really lacks
moderator. not someone that will remove posts he considers "lame" but all
that is off topic.
Off topic=not about FreeBSD OS.
