intergrated ports management
For me, as a BSD newbie, it was difficult to get PCBSD working with freeBSD ports. It should be integrated into PCBSD, by default.
I think PBI and ports are complementary technologies, not opposite, so integrated ports management programs would increase overall PCBSD impression and usability, especially for newbies.
Whether I use PBI programs or ports or packages, PCBSD is still the best freeBSD front-end available. It was an astonishing experience to find such OS, for me.
