Whats the point of complaining about to much choice if you did the full install?! Didnt you see that you can choose the packages you're likely to need up in front...

than again imo theres never to much choice only lack of confidence in making a choice

I did the full install but I have also done the other install methods. I didn't mention that in the article so you have a valid point.

However, I stand by my "Express Install" option because, as I mentioned, I DO NOT WANT to do a full install, I want a good system set up WITHOUT HAVING TO BABYSIT the installation. I have better things to do than stare at the installer, waiting for the next prompt. I am always anxious to start USING my Slack box, not to be a slave to the installer ;)

I won't dignify your "lack of confidence" statement with a response.

Thanks for the comments; I appreciate the thoughtful ones.
