"1) Provide some other Desktop apart from KDE. Most people who are
Linux, FreeBSD users, move to FreeBSD because they want something
lighter and faster."

PCBSD has traditionally provided alternatives to KDE.  When the system
starts and reaches the login page, look for the two small icons on the
bottom of the page.  (There is a screen shot illustrating this @
http://docs.pcbsd.org/guide/images/installation/install13%20-%20welcome800x600.jpg)
 Look for the icon labeled "Session Type."  Clicking  the "Session
Type" icon provides a menu from which you can select a different
windows manager.
