Why should a graphical installer have less functionality ? And what is wrong with some eye candy ? Guys, please, wake up, we don't live in the 70's anymore ! I'm using pc-bsd. Why ? Cause of the easy and nice installer. It's as simple as that. And before anyone says "do it yourself", "get a sponsor" or something down those lines : if it is all about choice, why not give the people/user the choice ?
