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.

Additions and plugins like these guys do can be integrated in the base system and make FreeBSD better and better.

Not many users are going to like this type of additions,plugins added to FreeBSD and I'm one of them. I don't like OS that are getting dumb-down with easy system configuration GUI menus,installers. FreeBSD is one of my main OS, if they are going down this path, it's going to be remove from my hard drive in a heartbeat.
