Any 'nix without vi/vim is beyond comprehension -- and Gnu systems should probably have emacs as obigatory out of respect.

vagabondo wrote:The installation should be able to collect localisation/keyboard mapping from the Live install or/and allow localisation to be specified at the same time as root password etc. This is all best done at the start of the install, so that the bulk of it can be unattended, allowing the machine to suspend/switch off under apci at the end of the install.
vagabondo wrote:What is the point of asking which desktop when they are all installed? Instead of radio buttons why not checkboxes; then the user could specify what they wanted, e.g. one heavy and one light destop. If I have KDE/Koffice then the Gnome office tools should not be installed by default and vice versa. Similarly Kedit/Gedit Konqueror/Nautilus etc. This could speed up the installation a bit --it is very slow.

vagabondo wrote:If there were tidied up KDE/Gnome-centric menus for the appropiate desktop, perhaps the Live install could have both side by side? I think that that would be less cluttered and more navigable.
vagabondo wrote:The default kernel has reiser4, but this is not an option for choosing which filesystem to create. Software RAID volumes are not detected. It is not obvious how to mount HDD filesystems with the Live install. The live install should offer to store the users' home directories and changed files from /etc/ to a removable media device.

why? Only because you like vi/vim and emacs and me not. Who is right?
