No, I think the coloration of the box is pretty neat, but what I find  
unprofessional is the fact that whatever you do, you'll get this error  
message. It should wait for the user to finish typing (when the password  
verification box loses focus) to check if passwords match, and not while  
you're typing, or else, no matter fast you can type, you get this rather  
unfriendly warning.

Yes, exactly.

No, I never use DHCP, only static private IPs and the DNS of my ISP.
The first DNS listed is: (I have no idea where it comes from).

Yes, but what I don't understand is why Linux shuts down the computer  
properly but not PC-BSD (both are open-source software).
