What about expandable list:

1 Workstation:
|--[rb]Minimal (text mode)
|--[rb]Minimal (xdm)
|--[cb]<Something big else 1>
|--[cb]<Something big else 2>

2 Server:
|--[cb] etc...

3 Manual select

rb-radio button
cb-check button

I worry it will be too confusing for beginners, we try to have easy
decisions and if user need something more advanced, that for such
purpose is that custom, which allows to specify any pattern you want.
Also it can easily switch to flame war what should be there and what
Goal of that dialog would be to allow easy UI for common scenarios
like workstation with major desktops and minimal server. For other
users we allows patterns selection and even in summary you can fine
tune it with full software selection if you want. As can be seen in
third gif, picking e.g. lxde is also very easy with it, just one click


PS I just relised, that is like mc winows install withards :(

Hi Factory users and developers,
I am working on providing a new desktop selection dialog in
as specified in . So
after some tweaking and
thinking I use roles functionality dialog we already had in SLES,
just with desktop selection. It will allows us in future more
potential tuning for specified desktops.

You can see result in
( screenshots and videos ). What do you think about it? I welcome
any feedback. I add there to comparison also old work-flow where is
one screen with online repos which we currently integrate in
desktop selection.

Thanks for any feedback
