Title: Dashboard Install GUI

openFATE: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Jeremy Thornton (leebrad)

- Create a dashboard install on the DVD at the installation screen to
- help new users better understand the install options available to them.
- By this I mean where the selections come up to install Gnome, KDE, etc.
- that a dashboard listing replace it showing the Gnome, KDE, LXDE, XCFE,
- JeOS, Server, and Server/Server GUI as separate icons rather than a
- drop down list to select. Additionally, as the user scrolls across the
- icon it would give them a a summary description of the type of system
- it will install and possibly a screenshot or two to see if they will
- like it visually. Then as the install proceeds the user can customize
- the package selection later as is currently part of the system.
- # Users for the most part naturally take the path of least resistance
- so dashboard will provide both choice and GUI ease of use for the user
- while offering something innovative to the installer that to date
- Ubuntu has not implement but is possibly on the verge especially with
- the intro of Meerkat.
+ This was accidently triple posted. Disregard this one.
