Aqua is pretty and all but it's pretty limited compared to X. Now that
I've installed XDarwin and WindowMaker I can run Aqua alongside full
screen XDarwin (it's been awhile since I've played XGalaga!). So I'm
booting OpenBSD less and less on my G4 and putting Open to good use on
older SPARC and i386 machines.
