Actually, this version is the same from a user POV as a fully GUI version.
The packages are mouse picked, the sudo password is entered from the
keyboard and the progress bar while in a terminal is just a progress bar
and effectively the same as if it was a GUI. The terminal would get opened
from a menu item and vanish when the install completed. I would argue that
a completely terminal based version would be no hardship even for someone
who has never done anything command line. I may yet find a terminal based
list app that does this.
