I second that FreeBSD is a server OS, but do sympathize with what Dan has
mentioned.   Opening new audiences of course starts with a quick install on
a desktop or laptop.

An easy answer would be to put the web-browser and such the first disk, but
I don't think it would solve anything.  If it kept with those, FreeBSD would
find itself just moving towards the same work being done at PC-BSD, wouldn't
