FreeBSD "Welcome to the home page of the finstall project, accepted for Google's Summer of Code 2007. This project aims to create a user-friendly graphical installer for FreeBSD & FreeBSD-derived systems. The project should yield something usable for 7.0-RELEASE, but the intention is to keep it as a "second" installer system during 7.x, alongside sysinstall. In any case, sysinstall will be kept for architectures not supported by finstall (e.g. all except i386 and amd64)." A first version has been released.

Nice, but why?

Although I admire the effort, this is mostly interesting for less 'technical' users... which are better served with PC-BSD or DesktopBSD. Sysinstall has its shortcomings, but it's proven/reliable/stable.

It looks really great, but I can't help but think it could be better when they would work together with the PC-BSD/DesktopBSD guys. At least they have the same goals.
