    Sure, no probs.

    There's even a rudimentary howto install Lumina,..., whenever you're "not too busy"

      Looks like a rip off of xfce crossed with some of the worse of lxde to be honest.

        Well, from what I can see, it looks usable, and if you're right about it being fast then I can easily see it being a success, and if they keep the size down enough, maybe even 'the' default. (making it the fallback looking way into the future similar to how gnome2 was)

              More careful analysis will reveal that it looks a lot like Fluxbox.

                This may be a knock-on effect of the whole Wayland and systemd thing. These technologies are (so far) Linux-centric, and desktop environments that are designed with GNU/Linux primarily in mind may start to integrate with, and require, these services. If you're building on bms system FreeBSD, and want to guarantee a high-quality, unique, enterprise-grade experience, it might not be a bad idea to go your own way on the desktop front. As a lay-person, I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with.
