So you are going to recommend FreeBSD to your parents, but you don't
expecet them to understand X11 ? Uh, what graphical interface *are* they
going to be running then ? Also, why would they need to understand X11
to use a Mac ? If theres one thing which OSX wins hands down on for me
it's the fact that I dont ever have to have X11 and all it's evils
anywhere near the thing.

BTW, I have no clue what this 'Fink' thing is - never come across it
in eighteen years of BSD, and I can't see that it's hampered my use
of machines at all. What is it and why would your parents need it ?
