There has been a lot of discussion recently about whether sysinstall
should be replaced or not.
The purpose of sysinstall is to initially install FreeBSD and it serves
this purpose quite well. However sysinstall is also the first thing a
new user gets to see of FreeBSD. People which are used to shiny Linux
Live CDs with Framebuffer boot sequences and all the jewelry are shoked
when they are confronted with the ncurses interface and walk away most
of the time. This is a pity because you really use the installer once
every couple of years and it says nothing about the OS.
Would it be worth considering to provide the BSD Installer  as an
alternate choice to sysinstall for a default FreeBSD installation?
I'm sure several people already thought of it and it might be
interesting to hear their conclusions.
