And they got a free Jobs to go with it!

Or did they buy a Jobs, and get a free OS.  I’ve never quite been clear . .

Ooh, I missed that.

I’m pretty sure that I ran 5.5 both headless and X under FreeBSD.

Come to think of it, I believe there are multiple threads in the archives, probably mid 2012, from when I was asking questions about it.  In there would be some discussions as to how far it gets in startup before bouncing off of X when not using headless.
