A Roadmap For FreeBSD Graphics Support

The latest FreeBSD code (for 10.0) supports not only Intel KMS but also the open-source AMD Radeon driver ported from the Linux kernel. This Intel/Radeon KMS support has since trickled into DragonFlyBSD and other BSD platforms. However, not all is up to par when it comes to graphics support on FreeBSD. Here'a a road-map and test matrix with some other items still on the BSD developers' agenda.

GhostBSD 3.5 Supports Xfce 4.10, MATE 1.6, LXDE
