Pushing the *BSD to the Desktop, IMHO, was a second thought which has not
quite gotten there. Trying to go a notch higher into the tablets is really a
dream, but one which I must say is not worth the time.
Let the *BSD stay where they belong - Servers!

On another note, my Lenovo T61 still does NOT run PCBSD. Remember the issue?
It's happly running Linux MINT though, and that surely saddens to more than
the Fujitsu issue. I keep hoping the "next" version will be able to install
and run.
