I should have written: "While I don't use BSD, I do have many embedded Linux systems that can't run a modern desktop, or in some cases, any desktop. Good monitors cost a lot more than most of those systems anyways, so I sit at the system with the best monitors, and access the development systems using X Windows."
Standards like X11, ssh, NFS, tar, and many more that I don't even realize I'm using, make remote operation easy and painless.
BSD developers who want the latest desktop software can use it, if they want it. It just means that they'll need a copy of Linux running on a real, or virtual host.
