At least to Gnome 3. You can probably go with MATE or Cinnamon
if you want to use a Gnome 2 environment. If "Zeitgeist" cannot
be removed from Gnome 3, it would probably be a no-go for me, too.

That is possible.

That's fine. :-)

Definitely. I'm doing this for decades now. :-)

Refer to the online documentation and examples I have provided
in the previous message. Basically, all you need to do is install
the window manager you want (and there is plenty of choice), adjust
~/.xinitrc (or ~/.xsession if you're using a display manager),
and it's done. It is actually not hard. The documentation will
guide you through the process, so anything you need to do is
just to "read, think, act". No software will be forced upon you.
You just want a window manager? Try fvwm2. You don't like it?
Deinstall it, install WindowMaker. With the "pkg" tool, it's
easy. No manual downloading from the web, no handholding, no
rebooting. :-)

You can probably find some more inspiration here:

It's definitely worth a try.

On the other hand, you could also try TrueOS (ex PC-BSD), which
is a desktop-oriented variation of FreeBSD; in fact, it's FreeBSD
plus additional software preinstalled and preconfigured.

It comes with an easy to use installer and is GUI based.

A university sysadmin should be able to install Ubuntu without
any problem. If there is a problem, he should be able to identify
it (for example, hardware not supported). But I can imagine that
troubleshooting with Ubuntu isn't as easy as with FreeBSD.

Hmmm... "shortage on professionals"... ;-)

FreeBSD isn't as popular as Linux, but it's definitely not inferior,
especially not because of the property of "usage share".
