GUI for ports

One thing that would also be helpful would be a GUI tool to help the newbie use the ports system without sending them to read the "handbook."

I've tried out the last 2 releases of PC-BSD, and quite honestly I didn't really like the package system because you couldn't keep the software up to date with it...which is why a ports gui would be better, IMHO. But it sounds like he's working on it, so I may just wait till that functionality is release before I install another incremental release.

Other than that, I'm really excited about this project!
