You lost a new Ubuntu user

There is a related (the 82% thing) thread on the forums at . This is being stuck
at 82% because the mirrors are slow probably due to high traffic...

I agree that the desktop ISO installer should not attempt to
automatically connect and download updates without asking and
prompting with a warning that these are for security updates. I have a
slow Internet connection and usually disconnect the LAN cable so that
the installer just moves on...

But I would like to point out to Peter the "community" that is Ubuntu.
You should participate by filing bugs/wishlists and discussing on
mailing lists and forums so that the distribution can be improved.

Come to think of it, if there isnt a bug/wishlist already filed to
have the installer ask/prompt before going online, then I should file
one myself :-)
