I forgot how much I enjoy running FreeBSD on the desktop - no systemd, no wayland, no dbus, no pulse audio, stable and quick, even on lower end hardware.

The simplicity of just startx and and a well tuned ~/.xinitrc can't be beat either.

@ecliptik The only sad thing is that we will have nowhere to turn with respect to Wayland. Even FreeBSD, will adopt it soon.

@ecliptik This is what I love about my Alpine laptop, too...
