New FreeBSD laptop user here.

This is the first time that _I_ have managed to get 'X' to work properly under FBSD.

This is an Advent 9112 laptop, dual 1.46GHz processors, 1.5Gb ram, 12" TFT, 160Gb HDD.

Yesterday evening, FreeBSD 10.0 installed from a pendrive - wifi setup straight O.T.B. - brilliant.
Added extras => package manager (strange that it wasn't in the base install), SC, VIFM, MPG123.

Today I added, xorg, pysolfc, firefox, mplayer, xmms, & fluxbox WM (my favourite).
Linux since 1999, & also a BSD user.
