Well, for me, I find that the installer problems are that some of the
wording for some of the choices seems unclear and sometimes you seem
to have to go back to go forward and things like that. I know that
there is an intent to allow you to back up any time (as long as you
haven't passed a point of no return like writing the disklabel) and
make changes and add or subtract things, but still, it could make it
more clear what stage you are at, what is finished and what is next
to do, etc.
But, as others have said, I have found it to be quite functional
and installation really quite easy outside of some of the awkwardnesses.
As for his point on funds, I am not sure, but I suppose he is
presuming that if people get turned off by the installer, then
they won't be FreeBSD enthusiasts who make donations or something.
