Because most Linux distributions have had this feature for a while now.
It's no secret that our installer blows. It gets the job done for a
basic install, provided you know its quirks, and thats it.

I think the advantage is clear. You don't have to waste time installing
the OS, then going through a complex procedure to setup RAID, and
reinstalling again, i think that would confuse average users more.
Besides, FreeBSD is a server operating system, and is not intended for
average users. If you don't know what RAID is, you shouldn't be in IT.
