#1 The main target of FreeBSD is servers; using an automated graphical
installer is not really an option. Besides, if you understand basic
things like partitioning, sysinstall is easy.
#2 The orignal goal of FreeBSD was never to attract windows users.
#3 if you like PC-BSD, by all means use it! it is designed specifically
for desktop users converting from windows, and it has an interesting
package management system.
