(Sorry for the inconvenience)

The "System Selection" screen, shown in Figure 3.3a, allows you to select the system components and window managers to install with PC-BSD®.

The default selection will depend upon the amount of RAM on the system. Systems containing more than 2GB of RAM will default to the KDE desktop and all other systems will default to the LXDE desktop. The arrow buttons can be used to browse through the primary window managers or to install a FreeBSD or TrueOS server instead of a PC-BSD® desktop. Before leaving this screen, click the "Customize" button to review a larger selection of desktops and system components to install. If you right-click a component and select "View Packages", a pop-up menu will list the packages that are installed with that component.

After installation, you can return to this "Customize" screen in order to install or uninstall additional components by going to Control Panel System Manager ➜ System Packages.
