You may have a point there.  :-)

If the software is well-written, "default" asks you questions that anyone
needs to think about, and "custom" asks questions that reflect the
developer's expectations but not their preferences.  Anyway, I've been a
sysadmin long enough to know that the difference between the "default" and
the "custom" install is always worth comparing.


PS: I think the local jargon translates the above to "/stand/sysinstall
should follow the principle of least surprise".
