It's naive to expect that modern (2020) desktop environments are just
sort of a helper to get consistent themes and fonts and a set of
utilities such as calculators, terminals and a 2048 game.

I'm using a plain window manager (openbox) and no desktop environment
at all.

I never experienced any modern (2020) desktop environment that is not a
PITA on any operating system.

Two-factor authentication was invented to enforce everybody to at least
own two physically separated fully equipped systems from each vendor.

To unlock your Foo washing machine, you need a Foo dishwasher and vice

To unlock your Bar telephone you need a Bar computer and vice versa.

To unlock optimized KDE performance and all KDE features on a FreeBSD
computer, you need a Linux computer also running KDE and vice versa.
