Fixes many issues with boot-up after installation; fixed problems with Online Update Manager; updated UserManager; added Russian and Bulgarian support; activates hard disk swap space during installation for lower memory systems; slimmed down KDE 3.4.2 by removing games/graphics/PIM ports, which can be optionally installed via PBI." See also the release notes for further information. Download from here.

To give themselves more control and to make things difficult for everyone else.

Don't be ignorant. PBI tries to make everything more accesible, and I can tell you that they've succeeded in doing so. A .pbi can simply be downloaded, double-clicked, and done. No need for difficult, unfamiliar package managers, command lines or whatever.

And you know what? You can still use ports on PC-BSD, because PC-BSD is still 100% compatible with FreeBSD.
