Hello PC-BSD developer,
I have some suggestion for you according to 3rd party software management. I'm very satisfied with PBI 9 method, but it is lack of optional choice for user:
1. Can you let user manually choose installation directory instead of automatically placing the program to usr/pbi directory.
2. Can you give user a choice to manually place icon on desktop, menu, or quick launch in the end of PBI installation wizard instead of go to PBI Manager first then right clicking the already installed software.
3. Even PBI is the main method for installing software in PC-BSD, but sometimes it is better to go with ports and packages to adding or removing necessary or unnecessary parts in PC-BSD. Can you make graphical front-end for them?
4. Can you make something like "gdebi
" in Ubuntu to installing *.tgz packages with just clicking on it and automatically downloading library that it needs, because it is the most similar method with PBI Manager for installing *.tgz packages.
