It is aimed pretty squarely at budding sysadmins, not desktop users (X
is hardly even mentioned),

We have many FreeBSD servers at my job that do many different things
for people.  Only 1 of them requires X in any form at all - and all it
uses are the X libraries to do some graphics processing.  It does not
run a window manager.  You can get a huge amount of useful work done
on FreeBD without having anything to do with X.


It wasn't a criticism - I just wanted to point out the sort of audience the book speaks to: people who run servers - who, as you say, have little or no need for X. I wanted to learn exactly the sort of stuff the book focused on, and loved it.
