I doubt there is much i can learn from you about FreeBSD, as i've been 
using it since the 2.x days. I'm well aware how long it takes to setup 
FreeBSD. You are completely missing the point, and at this point just 
arguing for the sake of arguing. The point is that including geom 
support in the installer saves time and makes life simpler. If you are 
too dumb/stubborn to realize that, then thats your problem, no one is 
forcing you to use anything.
