And generates more heat, need more RAM, consume more CPU time (*). Doff my hat to the fedora hat.I think Fedora is more automated than FreeBSD.
I agree, but if you need X on VM, install i3. It's near to CLI experience in term of resource usage.If you really need to use GUI, I suggest using multiboot, not virtual machine.

I think he is referring to the amount post install configuration handled by the systems package management which by itself probably won't be using any measurable amount of extra resources. I don't have much experience with Fedora so it might very well be true that its automatic default configurations are somewhat on the resource hungry side. If or to which extend automatic configuration is beneficial is debatable anyways. Some kind of optional post install script likely wouldn't hurt though. This way everyone is happy. I mean it's not exactly far fetched that if you install DE X you likely want it to be the default and as long as it's possible to reject this kind of automagic i think it's neither hard to implement (in most cases) or has any actual drawback.And generates more heat, need more RAM, consume more CPU time (*).
Xorg works fine in FreeBSD. Also this is FreeBSD Forums. Please don't plug GhostBSD here. Thanks.If you really want to use x server, you can youse GhostBSD. It uses freebsd 12.1 release kernel.
Now that really doesn't make a lot of sense. X runs just fine on FreeBSD. Actually i think suggesting some exotic system with what is probably a very tiny user base is not exactly in OP's best interest if he is in need for support (which it seems he is).If you really want to use x server, you can youse GhostBSD.
