In my humble experience, I think there are 2 distinct aspects to this issue.
I use FBSD both as desktop and as server. In practice, I need a GUI for
desktop work and none whatsoever for server work.
The only time I needed some kind of GUI component on a server was when I
wanted to test a VM on it and I wanted the comodity of running VirtualBox
console on my desktop. Other than that, the command line is more than enough.
OTOH, for the kind of work that I do, having 4 workspaces is absolutely handy.
And to be able to switch between these 4 scenarios with the scroll of a middle
button is definetly a plus.
just my 0,02 cents.
FreeBSD since 2.2.8 [not Pro-Audio.... YET!!] (99% winfoes FREE)
