[Bug 819798] No easy way to try keyboard layout during installation

I'm sure there are many asking for a shorter installation workflow in ubuntu
"because openSUSE proves it works"

Hum, well:
* Ubuntu's installer is actually a step shorter (I've counted)
* Ubuntu's installer is finished quicker, because it starts copying files
immediately after you picked the right partition layout and then lets you set
up things like user name, time zone, etc.
* After you've installed it, an Ubuntu system is already up-to-date, can play
Flash movies and MP3's (if you selected that tick box), and has Wi-fi set up
* Ubuntu doesn't make its users decide between two desktops (which to novice
users is an impossible-to-make decision & so, I guess, quite a time-waster
* Ubuntu's partition set up is much more user-friendly

It's by no means perfect, but, and that is indeed just imho, looks/feels more
professional and trustworthy.

I can't see the value of dead keys during installation either. If your user
name has dead keys, you will have *that* test 2 screens later. If not, you can
fix the layout after installation.

Sure, but why not pick the right one immediately? There'd be no need for an
installer, if it were fine for everyone to just configure everything post
