If you're asking for an installer which requires bitmapped graphics and won't work over a serial terminal or the like, well, I hope the answer is never. Some people have tried before and/or might still be working on a replacement, but thus far, nobody has written one which is widely regarded as better than sysinstall.

I have used the text base Sysinstall since 2.* FreeBSD.

It is extremely flexible especially with ports. Keeps your system lean of code.

Gui installs have a tendency to hide things you need to tweak or alter to suit a specific need.

I find it fast and efficient the way it is.

Thanks to our faithful coders for all their work.
