I recommend all of you to subscribe to test-list, or at least read the archives periodically, to see what parts of NewUI are the most problematic ones for our users. Your response to some of the questions would also be appreciated.

If anyone wants an executive summary of this morning's thread: it boils
down to what we were discussing already, that people are just not
grokking the layout and workflow of custom partitioning. They are
*definitely* not understanding that what you have in the left hand side
is existing and proposed new partitions grouped by the OS install they
are a part of, and on the right hand side you set properties of those
partitions. There is a lot of confusion about what it means when they
see a 'Fedora 17' group with a 'Boot' partition in it, for instance:
people think that's the /boot partition of the new install, or they
think it's something like that but they're not really sure.

Once we explain the layout I think people get it, but they're definitely
not understanding it when they see it.
