[Nottingham] Expert support in installers (Oh how I laughed)

Good stuff.

Which also brings to mind a recent depressing experience of mine:

Why do we need all the fuss of 'simple' installers in the first place
for the 'masses'? We should have PCs readily available with whatever
Linux distro pre-installed...

That is brought home very vividly from walking into a certain major
highstreet retailer where all that was offered were the 'latest Win8'
machines. From my own personal observation, the schizophrenic
"Metro"/"desktop" operation is truly astounding for being expensively

All very depressing that the clean beauty and choice of GNU/Linux
desktops are never shown the light for most people on the street.

And now there is UEFI and all the associated Marketing silliness with that...
