X11, Window Managers "Five months after release of X11R7.0, the modularized and autotooled release of the MIT Licensed X Window System source code, the X.Org Foundation has issued its first modular roll-up release. X11R7.1 supports Linux, Solaris, and BSD systems. It includes important new server and driver features for embedded systems, 64 bit platforms, enhanced operating system support, and accelerated indirect GLX support. It most importantly demonstrates to developers and industry immediate benefits of modularization."

You hit the nail on the head for me as a FreeBSD user. :-)
R7 isn't yet implemented in the ports collection, and already I can't wait to have KDE running with openGL acceleration on my laptop. (no, I'm going to stick with FreeBSD as I like it more than GNU/Linux :-P)
