FreeBSD "In December 2003, I wrote a script for remotely upgrading a linux system to FreeBSD. I gave it a catchy name ('Depenguinator', inspired by the 'Antichickenator' in Baldur's Gate), announced it on a FreeBSD mailing list and on Slashdot, and before long it was famous. Unfortunately, it didn't take long for changes in the layout of FreeBSD releases to make the Depenguination script stop working; so for the past three years I have been receiving emails asking me to update it to work with newer FreeBSD releases." And now it's back.

Broken for 3 years , no one to pay for it to be fixed or fix it , wil be broken at next update.

I say usual BSD ...

It seem to me , that anything that allow for easy instalation of my OS should be maintained and kept up to date by the core developers and offered on the default website and offered with the default distribution. But then I remember we are talking about BSD here.
