No, and for desktop iso I do not expect it to ever be the case. While it might frustrate the power user, it makes life simpler for a Linux noob.

On the other hand there is the altenate install iso which I have not used but think it offers some options since it is targeted at OEMs. The server iso is also an option if you prefer to build from the ground up, though you won't have a lot on install.

Ubuntu follows a different philosophy. The install gives you a default working environment which you can then customize while using.
