FreeBSD has no installer at freebsd.org list. Should it ? Only a few
people tend to work on & know the constraints of the installer,
many people over years have have made suggestions & comments, would
it be more efficient if FAQs were auto archived & easily found in
an installer at freebsd.org archive ?
My comments/ wish list
- One text mode (non bitmap graphical) browser: /usr/ports/www/lynx
- Still too complex for blind/ partially sighted people with special I/O
phsical devs, I guess.
- There are small clones of standard vi, with executables
no larger than ee, could replace ee.
