    Well, I suppose it's just "pick your favourite"...

      Very odd to have Debian wallpaper on FreeBSD.

        VM

        The taskbar on taskbar with KDE gives it away.

          VM, yes. You can see the VirtualBox menu and status lines on top and bottom. Did not want to pollute my host system with this comparison install.

          Code:
          [email protected]:~$ cat /etc/debian_version  
          bullseye/sid

            Same comparison with (unusual) smaller screen sizes...





            Quite the difference... 😖

              Ah. I wasn't sure if the top bar was VirtualBox or some sort of AppMenu.

                The reality here is we are in the active deployment stages of Wayland and the deprecation of bare metal X11 servers. RHEL 8 with default as Wayland Gnome in 2019 was the start of this process.

                Yes as normal in graphical Freebsd and other BSD is a little lagging behind.

                Windows managers and Desktop environments for X11 without a Wayland plan and some progress are well and truly in trouble.

                Fun how a few people posted that if Linux main distributions went wayland they would be able to remain on BSD for a while.

                Yes these changes in freebsd also makes NVidia need to update their driver to support Wayland more critical.

                I have seen no one on the Mac OS side working on a Wayland compatibility layer. Stupid enough WSL for Windows is working on Wayland support.

                    If I remember correctly windows API allows for virtual desktops since w2k.

                    Personally I think it's not the most important feature

                      You've never peed yourself in shame because you didn't know some odd trivia?
