    I’m not a FreeBSD user, just merely installed the basics, but these are NOT things I would be starting with!

    I think the first things to start with, is update the ports, and then try to install basic programs.

    If you install it on a laptop, a GUI, browser, and firewall would make sense.

    Good golly, NO! There is NO good reason to enable root login over SSH. Leave that stuff turned off and use a non-privileged account to login.

    You’re trying to turn a lovely BSD box into a raspi linuxbox — what with your bash and nano. >_<

    Zsh (oh-my-zsh!) and new-kid-on-the-editor-block 'micro' helps keep GNU/Linus well distant (as much it can be). Otherwise, great article for new users to tie up loose ends. Cheers.
