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.

No memories for me - reality every day. :-)

"I haven't used FreeBSD in a while but I did use it exclusively as my desktop for about 3 years. System was rock solid and I always found configuration files in a sane readable format. Nothing but good things to say about FBSD."

Along with the - let me emphasize it once more - excellent documentation (manpages, examples, defaults, comments in files itself) there's no problem if you can handle the most simple base system tools. I'm running FreeBSD as main OS since version 4.0.
