Possibly, but if I understand you, I still disagree with you.
There's considerable effort that goes into integrating FreeBSD with KDE
and Gnome and many other programs that make a spiffy Desktop.
I wouldn't call the server role "the main objective" under any
circumstances. Personally, I would consider the main objective
to be a stable, secure, fast OS that's flexible enough to drop into
any role needed. But that's just my opinion.
