Re: installer final touches matters



Please take discussions like these to the installer development list;
fedora-devel is too broad a list to discuss mintuae like this I think.

Would it help if the bright orange /!\ icon immediately next to it was
larger?

That's a fair point.

Unfortunately, Anaconda can't read the user's mind as to what the user
is looking to achieve, but if you aren't trying to do something advanced
or complicated you'll be led through the guided installation path which
is very well documented and has a lot of explanatory language to guide
the user through. I noticed you didn't include screenshots of any of that.
