here a few notes about the first impression:
 - installed on 8G HDD, installed all the PBI that were on the DVD
 - create a new user and password with the "autologin" enabled

first boot didn't automatically login, I entered the password, and it restarted the console.  I exit the consolle, entered the password manually choose the session type (KDE), and the session restarted.  login in consolle, and I noticed that the drive is completely full.... 8GB of operation sysytem.

manually removed the folder /usr/src and I was able to login into KDE.

 - show an error message when the disk is full and the user is not able to login

  Subject: [PC-BSD Testing] [SPAM] installer

  I am installing right now the beta2 on VMware (1G ram, 8G hdd).
  everything is going smooth.

  love the new installer interface.

  I have a suggestion. when choosing which kind of installation (upgrade/server/etc..) would be nice if when I click on the installation option, or even better when I pass the mouse on top of it, it explain to me what would be different if I choose that option instead then the other.  could be a tooltip or simply update the bottom of the installation.

  today I am going to test it to see if my over 30 installations will be able to support it (the people in my company that use PC-BSD are very computer illiterate and they just got used to 1.5.1)

  note about 1.5.1 (will test this on 7) I see that I can choose if I want to install K3B or not, but is there a way that I can remove any music player ?  when logging in some sites using FF2 it opens the media player (www.mailtrust.com - after the login)

  I will send a list of suggestions once that I finish my test today.

  Thank you very much
