    I assumed that with "pick it up" he meant something more than "it's available in the repo just like everything else".

    Because otherwise his question makes little sense. TrueOS builds on top of FreeBSD, so it's logical consequence that anything available in FreeBSD will be available also in TrueOS.

      All evidence to the contrary

        But he's right. They switched due to a number of reasons, but mostly to have something that follows more closely the BSD way of things, instead of relying in a layer after a layer of libraries made for Linux, with other OS support added as an option.

        I have been looking at Enlightment on FreeBSD and one of the things I found right out the bat, is that it doesn't follow FreeBSD way of doing things. As specified on the FreeBSD manual, an user added to Operators group can reboot and shutdown the machine. But Enlightment ignores that, and ask for root privileges which can only be provided by SUID a binary provided. Even when writing a simple C program that calls shutdown -p now works without root, if you belong to that said group.

            I'll gladly welcome Plasma 5 in TrueOS, but seriously Lumina is improving in every update, at first it was quite unpleasant, nowadays it mostly works fine.
