But this is frustrating, and makes a good case for why people are staying with Windows. In going from the old C-64/C-128 to Apple, to IBM, to a CP/M operating system, the system commands reminded very much the same. Even in going from the old GEOS (On both the C-64/C-128 or the PC) to them MAC, to Windows, things stayed very close to the same between them. Here everything is completely different. It's like going from English to being told to fill out a form in Chinese without ever having seen or heard the language.
I've installed the FreeBSD software 4 times coming to the same end. How do I get from this Chinese line item stuff to an environment that I can deal with? KDE seems to be installed, but is not coming up by default, nor by any other way or reason.
I've tried several things, but I tried something to manually bring up KDE the other day by switching to it's directory. Whatever I was doing was something out of the FreeBSD Handbook. I was logged in as 'root'. I got errors saying that I did not have permission. This puzzled me. I didn't think this was supposed to happen while logged in as "root".
I have version 5.2.1 which I had downloaded a couple of weeks ago.
