You're right. A german computer magazine wrote that
FreeBSD is the better Linux. :-)

There is no "DOS mode" in FreeBSD. "Console mode" is
correct, as well as "text mode" or even "terminal mode"
(last one not used very often).

Or follow the handbook according to how to install KDE
or Gnome which provide the usual means for a full-featured
graphical environment.

(At this point, I can really recommend reading FreeBSD's
excellent documentation in the handbook and in its FAQ,
to be found on the main web site.)
