Having done a few installs with the new system I can confirm
this, and I must say do like it and prefer it over the previous
'automatic' installer. It's much more open and you know exactly 
what's happening. It may scare off some novices, but otoh if
they 'bite the bullet' they will learn a lot.

and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
