Maybe FreeBSD isn't right for them.  It's not meant to be all things
to all people.  It may be that a different OS would fill your needs
better.  If so, you should use it!  If you're determined to run some
kind of BSD UNIX, you should investigate PC-BSD, which is meant to be
easier to install and maintain for non-technical users.

For someone who claims to have given up on FreeBSD, you certainly seem
to have a lot of time to argue about it.  Why the anger?
