Re: Alan Cox Calls Fedora 18 "The Worst Red Hat Distro"

Well OK, I can sort of see your point. That said, what stopping you from opening the DVD and installing the package from there?

Should all of the packages on the DVD be available as on option extra selection?

The way I see it the DVD is there to give you some choices, mostly related to desktop environment. Additionally the Firefox version on the DVD is 17.0.1, so the more up to date version will still have to be downloaded.

I'd say it's pretty well explained here: »docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fed···x86.html - 9.9.Software Selection

The old installer (as in Fedora 17) was a lot more flexible.

The new installer is an unwarranted dumbing down.

I do agree the new installer needs work. I don't think it's all that bad though. There are a far worse installers out there.

Kinda sad when the author prefers an Amazon sales platform to that desktop system.

Yeah... I am removing that particular platform from all of my systems for that very reason.
