One of the historic application design rules for Unix was
"silence is golden".  This makes sense on an old 150 baud
current loop teletype that made such a racket that the less
feed back from an application the better.

Now in the modern world of project managers, Kibitzers, lookie lews,
status reports, time lines and check boxes seem to be in great demand.
What many forget about oversight is that it costs.  It costs time,
money, man power, and yes introduces delays.

So how much time did the original project manager budget for the
download, burning and verification of the installation media?
I have never felt I could get media in my hands over the net 
or FedEx in less than a week....
