Alan, we are trying to improve the experience for the specific
audience of artists, developers and the like who download the Desktop
Live image from the web site and want to install it on a laptop or

every situation in which Linux is used.

No one is advocating taking away the old style Linux installation (the
Fedora "choose your own adventure" DVD).
