Comments/Problems: At the Task Selection screen, I was prompted to choose software for my system. Needing to go back (to change the selected mirror), I pressed "esc" on my keyboard. Instead of going back, this started the download of the packages. I was also unable to stop the download.
This is counter-intuitive, and very frustrating. It could be improved by listing the key bindings on the screen (or on a help screen). Also, the ability to cancel the download of packages would be useful.
