No, I am not scared, because I don't need much 'desktop friendlyness'. During the last 9 years, I have used FreeBSD as the only OS available on my desktop, and I am sure that I have enough knowledge to create a similar environment using Owl, and I'm asking these questions just to learn how to get it done faster. I'm absolutely comfortable with configuring everything manually using shell/vi and don't need any GUI tools offered by desktop-frienly OSes. -- Grigoriy.
