If by "using sysinstall", you mean using it to install packages, then it's not 
all that bad, although it's generally better to keep everthing up to date 
from ports.

Having said that, the things that people with slow computers often prefer to 
install from package, such KDE or OpenOffice, often have more up to date 
versions available on other servers.
