You lost a new Ubuntu user

Keep in mind that prompting before going online would, with the
simplest solution, block the installation process and require user
intevention which is absolutely against how Ubiquity should behave.
Instead, there would need to be a checkbox in the final setup page to
"check online for security updates while installing". Getting the UI
right requires some extra effort; the fix has the potential to destroy
Ubiquity's charm :)

It isn't quite as simple a solution as it is a problem, although
definitely in need of fixing.
