A Look at the Ubuntu Installer

Wow, that's very thorough.  I particularly like the partitioning
suggestions, since that seems to be the hardest thing to explain, and
Partman (that's what's in the new installer right?) feels uncomfortable.
Switching from GParted to Partman resulted in a more geeky interface, IMO.
I partition with GParted before starting the installer to avoid having to
use Partman now, but that thing where the live system auto-mounts the
partitions after you make them (which you showed in there) is really
annoying since it often fails on making the filesystem because of it (I'm
always racing to unmount the partitions as fast as possible).
