Xfce When we reported on the release of Xfce 4.8, we ignored a statement inside the release announcement about the lack of new features coming to the BSD world. The statement was a bit disconnected from the rest of the press release, but Xfce developer Jannis Pohlmann has published a blog post giving a few more details about the issue.

That statement is as accurate as this one below.

Most Linux admins probably use Win7 and ssh.

Actually I retract my statement, most BSD admins are likely using XP and ssh.

Most BSD servers exist inside corps and are accessed remotely.

Most Windows Server admins probably use Ubuntu and rdesktop.

I am but one admin but personally, I used a VM with Debian on it before having a notebook issued. The notebook is win7/Debian booted into Debian 95% of the time. I'd suggest that any BSD or Linux admins who have the choice are using BSD or Linux on a local machine or VM when doing any heavy work with console managed servers.

Sure, one can use Putty and filezilla or WinSCP but it's like running a race on crutches; you're constantly aware of functionality lacking from a natural interface like native SSH and Rsync.

(Just to interject one real life example. Now we return you to your regularly scheduled nerd slap fight.)
