"It seems you're using a different system, propably not FreeBSD."

Yes, I am an OpenBSD user, but I also use FreeBSD on some of my desktops. The fact is that I am deliberately not using eye candies, because -for me - it's obsolete and unpractical, just waste of the resources and an entry for new bugs - possible threat for stability and security.

"KDE 4.x seems even snappier on FreeBSD than on many of the major Linux distros."

No doubt it is. I was talking only about HW. It is obvious [for the ones that have used FreeBSD just once], that FreeBSD is faster than most OSs.
