Ahem, why would I be heading North? Also its funny, because both my posts here and on Nedit thread are meant tongue-in-cheek. You know, like John Cleese's Frenchman speech from The Holy Grail.

FreeBSD looks pretty well supported by NVidia. Dunno about ATi tho. I guess it's time to kick the tire and try it over the weekend.

indeed, freebsd is the most popular so supporting that would make the most sense

AMD and Intel are reasonably well supported on FreeBSD, and thus by extension ATi. Newest model AMD graphics cards don't work quite yet.

Speaking of Nvidia an EVGA Geforce 5700 that I'd been using for, let's see, eleven and a half years ate itself last night. I get a million "Failed to allocate context pattern *** Aborting ***" messages and the screen stays dark. Gotta hand it to the Nvidia engineers for packing a world of information into such a terse error message!

Anyway, back on topic, yaaaaaaay Maxx Deskop! I've been a user since the very first days of 5Dwm... :P

Here's another vote for FreeBSD, always wanted to try Maxx but did not want to go back to Linux. I would put freebsd on my thinkpad just for Maxx ;)

As long as you provide a properly formatted makefile and instructions for .Xsession initialization, I'll do it.
