As I said, this looks wrong. You should be able (and actually do)
start X from a user account with "startx", or have the system
start a display manager (for graphical login), such as gdm or
xdm, where you also log in with your user account.

Good idea. At least keep _one_ of the installations that works
more or less painlessly. Having both a 32 bit and a 64 bit
version of the same Linux distribution on the same system
looks more or less like nonsense to me.

Not neccessarily. Meanwhile there are plenty of open WLAN
hotspots that you can use with your own computer.

In academia, people are quite narrow-minded. At least it was
when I was a student (in Germany as well). Most people only know
"Windows", some at least have heared of Linux, and almost no one
knows about FreeBSD (or UNIX at all). At least the more technical
people (sysadmins and technicians) who run the university's IT
infrastructure, which heavily (!) uses Linux, know about it.

In that case, FreeBSD is an _excellent_ choice.

In Germany, everything is being observed that is more or less
"plain text" (e-mails and regular web traffic). The data is
stored as required per law. The "nothing to hide" mentality
is very strong among people, so using a _safe_ operating
system (which has to be open source) and a _secure_ browsing
channel helps a lot to preserve your privacy.

If a system is not reliable, unstable, and maybe insecure,
it's not a good choice for an OS to run on your system. :-)

As per the handbook. :-)
Really: Installing FreeBSD is super easy as soon as you can
boot the installation image from CD, DVD, or USB.
In worst case, try TrueOS (formerly PC-BSD), an operating
system based upon FreeBSD (it actually _is_ FreeBSD), complete
with desktop environment and so on. But it might be "too much"
for you if everything you want is just a nice window manager
and the few application programs you're intending to use.
FreeBSD offers you that kind of choice.

That is normal, because they are the _prime_ security risks today.
It's not even "Windows" anymore that leads the "top 10 of security
hazards", it's typically Java, "Flash", "MS Office", "Adobe Reader",
and of course all those virus programs ("anti-virus" they often
PS. Instead of worwarding, use "reply to all" when replying to a
list message. It should then automatically set the To: and
Cc: destinations to the person you've replied to, and to
the list. If I remember correctly, "reply to all" is preferred
on this mailing list, even though "reply to list" would
probably be okay, too. The Opera mail client should support
both methods. Even my "simple-minded" mail program does this. :-)
