4 gig for xorg? As I said, my entire system installation, including the
base system, xorg, AND kde, only runs 3.1 gig (of a 4.8 gig system
partition, FWIW on a 5 gig md/RAID-1 with the other quarter-gig being
my local admin scripts, etc, on /usr/local). So either you or FBSD has a
rather fat xorg, if it's taking well more than my entire system
installation including kde.
But yeah, if you're split down to 12 gigs allocated for FBSD including
user data (/home), that does impose a rather tight limit on what you
install, and I can see deciding to go with an older kde3 especially on
your older/slower/smaller hardware, over kde4.
