CLANG and USB3 are the parts I know that I'm looking forward too...
but I agree. Wouldn't it be *great* if someone were to come up with a
nice, simple GUI for installing ports and packages? It'd be even nicer
if it were based on a *current* FreeBSD, not FreeBSD 6.

Oh well. Guess I'm stuck with PC-BSD for now :)
