The install went fine. Easy enough - almost identical to the Slackware,
text-based set of install options/menus of 1994 or 2005 (same all along, I
think).

Upon completion, was looking at command prompt.

OK....what about X?

Went to FreeBSD web site and found out who to configure X.org. That took 15
seconds. XDM was running in a few seconds more.......but XDM is VERY VERY
basic as GUIs go. **

Then found you had the option of compiling from (included) source any of
Gnome, KDE or XFce.

Nice....but I had runout of time at that point and hadn't realised I'd need
to compile the window manager from source. **

Off to do it now.

Added attraction of the new v6.0 was that the BSD kernel now supports my
wireless network cards.
