I would assert that FreeBSD is first and foremost a Server OS.
The fact that it can also provide a full blown desktop, is so much
In this context, I believe that it makes more sense to place the
server related install on the first disc. This makes it possible
to install a server with the least amount of effort. It /also/
makes it quite possible for a would-be desktop user to likely
only need to exchange discs /one/ time. As the most frequently
used desktop items will fit onto their own disc (one disc).
Bottom line: this arrangement should ultimately make everyones
life easier, and maybe even happier. :)
