FYI: I just installed using QEMU:

Old installer:

Lubuntu (LXDE) 18.4.2 (20 minutes, 7 seconds)

New Installer:

Lununtu (LXQt) 19.4 (13 minutes, 41 seconds)

I installed both from the Live CD desktop environment (not the GRUB
"Install it" menu item. 19.4 doesn't have that option. So they were both
installed the same way.).

18.4.2: I chose download updates while installing, and install 3rd party

19.4: Doesn't have those two options (or, I wasn't paying enough

Could that affect the difference in install times? I.e., does Calamaes do
that stuff by default? If not, I could reinstall 18.4.2 with those two
options disabled (download updates & install 3rd party).
