jziegler, I think you miss the point completely.

If you're comfortable with an advanced package manager, it means the PC-BSD simplified package management is not for you: so, even on PC-BSD, you would use the excellent FreeBSD ports, since they're totally available there too (it has a complete FreeBSD operating system under the hood).

Your mistake is thinking that everybody has the same priorities as you.
If somebody has a big HD (and today, most HDs are) and they happen to want to get the work done *the fast way* - without even knowing or caring about what a dependency *is* - then the PC-BSD package manager is the best solution for them. It's as simple as that.

Many users of a desktop OS are exactly like that. And it doesn't mean that they're stupid or something - they simply *don't care*. Maybe they're not interested in a PC's inner workings, or maybe they've got more urgent things to do.
