I prefer to install from ports, because then I can upgrade my ports with
cvsup and portupgrade. The downside is that it takes some time, and this
is more noticeable if you run on a slow system.

I prefer XFce, because it is quite small and fast, and lightweight so it
works on machines with limited memory. And still it looks more like a
"normal" graphical desktop than many of the more radical choices (like
 only running one of the small footprint window managers).
My best advice to you is to try a few, and find out for yourself which
one you feel works best for you after a time.

I don't, so I can't help you there.
