OpenBSD "OpenBSD 5.0 has been published, six months after the release of version 4.9. The OpenBSD project's newest release of the free BSD based UNIX-like operating system includes a number new and updated drivers, performance improvements and new features. OpenBSD 5.0 includes the GNOME 2.32.2, KDE 3.5.10 and Xfce 4.8.0 desktop environments. It also contains a number of new and updated packages including versions 3.5.19, 3.6.18 and 5.0 of the Firefox web browser, PHP 5.2.17 and 5.3.6, LibreOffice 3.4.1, and Chromium 12. The release includes September's release of OpenSSH 5.9." GNOME 2 you say? Huh. Interesting.

Exactly!!
I've never seen a screenshot of OpenBSD (or any BSD other than FreeBSD or PC-BSD, for that matter) running a full-blown DE. If it's not X-less, then it's usually a lightweight *box or tiling WM.


Exactly what? Your comment makes zero sense. Just because you haven't seen such a screenshot doesn't mean I cannot setup my system with such a DE. Too many people make really stupid assumptions about OpenBSD as if it's not even possible to have a system setup with these bloated DE's.
