comment A fast and lightweight distro with GUI (for web development)
@AlexStack Let's not call them distros. There is only one FreeBSD and, yes, you can roll your own with any tools you wish. PC-BSD might be called a distro but it's core is still FreeBSD. The flexibility isn't what I meant by 'professional'. FreeBSD's goal is being a great operating system, not games or competing with Windows. But I digress.

comment A fast and lightweight distro with GUI (for web development)
@AlexStack All of the things you mention, I use on FreeBSD, but answering your question is not appropriate here. I suggest asking that question here, forums.freebsd.org , though it's been asked many times before. FreeBSD will be more difficult to set up for a noob cause it doesn't come pre-canned with anything beyond the basic OS. Check out the handbook. First advantage, you install what you want without concern for "which distro?" or the wandering around of all those, much of which seems to be moving away from the Unix-way. All the rest is too much to mention here.

@AlexStack As I write this, I do so on Chromium. I just finished using Inkscape, too. What else do you use that you think doesn't run on FreeBSD?

comment Configuring Apache 2.4 for CGI on FreeBSD
I'm not sure this is quite correct. It's been a long time since I've run Apache but I recall the same error the first time I tried it and switching shells, in this way, was not the solution. If you notice the error says, "Permission denied..." which is not an error from using the wrong shell and installing a package should have resolved that if the shell was the problem.

Possibly UEFI related but I can't help beyond that

comment Linux Desktop Access via Web Browser
You don't need the desktop to do any of those things. Why don't you just ssh into it?

comment Why should you NEVER edit the /etc/shadow file directly?
@JdeBP Except it's not a problem at all and the BSDs store in master.passwd

Note that this is true for all Unix, BSD and Unix-like systems.

comment Resolving FreeBSD pkg conflicts
I use ports, not pkg, but I don't see anything being removed and only that your packages are all up-to-date so pkg isn't going to do anything. What the conflicts mean, I don't know, but the ShellShock problem is with bash and not your packages. FreeBSD does not use bash by default.
