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.

"I hope FreeBSD does not follow the path of Ubuntu"

Why not? Ubuntu has better i18n then PC-BSD or DesktopBSD and is more popular. But oh, wait! It cannot! FreeBSD is "just" an OS while Ubuntu is a Linux distribution! Fine difference. :-)

Ubuntu being most popular measured how? User base? Downloads?
