	Argh! Please NO don't go there.

	OK that's the emotional bit over, you can guess my personal opinion
is that a standard GUI is a bad idea. I like having a choice in GUIs and I
made my choice several years ago and I know that it is not one of the more
popular options (ie. not Gnome, KDE, NextStep, fvwm or *box) but it *is*
the one that *I* like.

	What I'm saying is that choosing a GUI is as personal as choosing
an editor. I think the BSDs go far enough by providing pre-built packages
for the most popular desktop environments (even if I wouldn't touch any of
them with a bargepole).
