Bad things/comments:

After choosing the language, there is an oddly long pause before
the country or region dialog shows up.  Another long pause before
the keyboard layout selection.  (By 'long,' I mean about two seconds.)

The installer does not configure non-free sources.  Is this new Debian 
policy?  (It's fairly easy to edit sources.list by hand but is there 
a way for a new user to do this as an option in the install?)

Good things:

Autodetecting modules is very nice--I had to manually figure out
which network card VMware used with woody's install and add the
module for it.  Mirror selection is better.  stable/testing/unstable
is a nice touch.  The partioner is fantastic--especially easy on the
empty (emulated) disk I used.  I prefer this installer's Grub to woody's
default LILO.

Sound works with no manual intervention on this setup.
