Actually, I like the new installer, it's great, simple, fast and
straight forward; only uncompress 4 files and you're done, still let
you enable the services you need.

I think it can be improved a little more though, for instance the
manual partition utility could show the total available free space in
units that will actually fill the disk/partition (It recommended me to
create a 40G partition and let 800Mb unpartitioned hole at the end)
and could also show a resume of the steps to be performed.

Other than that, I think is a good improvement.

Do not let me induce you to satisfy my curiosity, from an expectation,
that I shall gratify yours. What I may judge proper to conceal, does
not concern myself alone.
