Thanks for the info. I am not that well familiar with the OpenSource apps at the moment. A couple of months ago, my brother had tried KDE on a laptop. I didn't, see the "expose" effect on that; even an an option. I remember Compiz.. Liked it when I was using Gnome2. I loved the fish tank effect and stuff. Is it possible to have Compiz on a KDE Desktop? (Forgive my ignorance)The MacOS "Mission Control" seems to be the same "expose" effect, what is present in many non-tiling compositing WMs, including the old compiz-fusion, which probably was the first to implement that.

I understand. I would have liked to see something in the description that links to a step by step guide. But that is the best that I could find. Seeing those videos gave me the idea of using FreeBSD as my primary system. But I am still on the fence. I like MacOS. It works well on my Hackintosh.Thanks, although I positively hate videos of installations that don’t have an accompanying transcript. Having to glimpse every single command and pausing the video repeatedly is pretty annoying. It’s what lazy people and those looking to monetize their videos via YouTube are doing.
I can say the same thing about MacOS. I have been using my Hackintosh for years and it get upgraded to the latest OS without any hassle.The beauty of FreeBSD is in its performance
and in its stable work, configure it once and use it for years on your real hardware.

Unfortunately the fan boy is youIgnore the poster, he’s a fanboy who is often just stirring up trouble.
I don't believe he is trying to stir up anything. He was pointing out FreeBSD's stability and I was also claiming that in my experience with my Hackintosh, I had no issues. MacOS has been just as stable. So stability is not the issue for me looking into running FreeBSD as a Desktop.I’m with you on that.

The Hackintosh has been running for years without an issue. Does everything I need really. I guess my only reason for asking about FreeBSD is the allure of building up something from scratch just the way you want it.As you’re running a Hackintosh, you’re probably not too concerned about stability. You may find that FreeBSD, once configured, is more stable. There are no niceties though, like consistent HiDPi or working network share mounting. Things that are so basic to macOS they are just treated as a given.
