My experience is the exact opposite of yours: I've gone from FreeBSD to
Mac (though I tinker on any OS I find, Linux, Windows, Menuet, etc).
I'm curious if you've played with OpenDarwin at all. I've been meaning
to install it, but haven't had the time, and the newest version runs on
both PPC and x86. Anyway, I'm curious to see how OS X evolves. As it
is now, running X11 on it is pretty weird. Where is XF86Config? or
xf86config for that matter? The operating system is still very new and
Macs are new to me, so I expect to figure things out eventually. BTW,
what's with this GNOME and KDE stuff? Fluxbox forever!
