PC-BSD Installer Makes Top 6 Linux/BSD Graphical Installers
PC-BSD’s installer made the top 6 list of open source graphical installers. It is interesting to compare screenshots of the various installers.
Here is what the article had to say about the PC-BSD installer:
SysInstaller, or PC-SysInstaller, is the installation program of PC-BSD, a FreeBSD distribution with KDE as the main desktop environment. It offers more configuration options in less steps than other installation programs in this article. It is, in a sense, what DI (the Debian Installer) is not.
Pros: Support for GPT. Like DI, it offers options to install Desktop Environments other than KDE.
Cons: Lacks support for boot loader password-protection. Shown in this screenshot is the desktop configuration step, where you can choose what Desktop Environment to install. The default is KDE4.
And this is the disk configuration step. Advanced disk setup does not get any simpler than this. Note that this screenshot was taken from a release candidate of the upcoming PC-BSD 9.
