    Tried it and it worked well. Only reason I am not using it as a daily, is the lack of GTX1080 drivers. Now if I could get my hands on betas....... :-)

I have no idea but I'm figuring not.
    Thank you for the explanation. That explains why I haven't noticed the issues (I don't use Steam.)

    I'd be happy to see a showdown of all the BSD distros, alongside some Linux ones.
    FreeBSD
    NetBSD
    OpenBSD
    Debian-kFreeBSD
    Dragonfly BSD
    PCBSD
    MidnightBSD
    GhostBSD
    Debian Stable
    Debian Testing
    Fedora
    Although, getting software to run on all of them may be a lot of work.
