[PC-BSD Testing] Interesting article about xFce and BSD

Linuxland gets a lot of love in this arena but BSD is quickly becoming 
the red-headed stepchild. I hope 9.0 changes all this. BSD has really 
fallen behind in its ability to adopt the current changes in various 
architectures (hello XOrg server, DRI, MESA, etc.). Until they get that 
caught up and integrated, it's just bandages on bullet holes. Soon, no 
one is going to care how great BSD is if it runs great on 5 year old 
hardware.
