PLEASE don't give FreeBSD a GUI for installation and system configuration.
If the users want it, make another distribution.

What I like best in FreeBSD is its user interface. I just love it. Upgrading 
the system and installing software from source is so easy (I'm just a 
newbie). Sysinstall is really well-designed. It took me less than a day to 
get acquainted with the user interface. Please don't change it.
