Hi Swjatoslaw;

If you install FreeBSD, you only get a command line interface (terminal), and then you can choose to install a graphical interface by "pkg install xorg gnome3" etc.

If you want a graphical interface to just work out of the box, I would recommend TrueOS, which is based on FreeBSD but provides some nice default installed packages and also a few customised items to better match a desktop use case.

I use FreeBSD on my desktops/laptops personally, because I know my way around the system and don't mind putting in a bit of effort to set it up the way I like it. However, it does take some effort.
