I’ve recently installed FreeBSD on a spare PC and am planning to explore its use as a desktop machine. The plan is to explore the apps I use day to day on my iPhone and Mac to see what the software world is like over in FreeBSD.
I know from years of Linux use that sometimes it is hard to find something that matches the quality of software available for the Mac and Windows, so I’m aware of the problems I’ll face. That’s fine though. I’m here to explore and see where things are good and bad, and enjoy that journey.
I also plan to check out a few windows managers and desktop environments along the way, though I’m fairly happy with KDE (and I’ll be interested to see how quickly the 5.25 release which came out recently makes its way to FreeBSD).
