To truly reach the end user, it would need to sport KDE and something like synaptic, or perhaps a graphical binary ports system. KDE is too complicated, as is downloading packages as a separate step from installation.

Er, the review said that it installed KDE 3.4.3 by default, and had a
binary ports system..

D'oh, I missed the word "graphical" in your comment about the binary ports
system, sorry!

Still, this is only the RC for their first release, give them time.. :-)

Installing KDE from ports collection is easy it automatically downloads
all the dependent packages source or binary versions. I usually compile
from source I just type at the prompt
cd /usr/x11/kde3 && make install
and go to bed, it is ready in morning.

For while I was subscribed to the gnucash maillist to and every upgrade
the list was flooded by Red Hat user having install problems, something I
did not experience with FreeBSD.
