Can anyone tell me why nobody actually cares about what Conrad Knauer
was talking about in the first place ?
How in **** did a discussion about making the Ubuntu installer look
simpler, become a debate about whether some password or network security
mechanism (or whatever) is crackable or not ?
Focus people, any real thoughts about simplifying the Installer ?
For me the Ubuntu install process doesn't get any easier, but I have to
agree that it still LOOKS (as in what you see, not what you actually
get) a bit complicated. And I also agree that hiding some of the
options, people usually don't change, can help.
Any thoughts ?
P.S: no rumble about cracking password or I'll send the tooth fairy to
hunt you down :)
