This is so utterly and completely wrong it's not even funny.

99% of what's on the installer images is the same from one flavour to
the other. The only difference between flavours are the default
retrievers that are put on the image, the drivers that are available,
and what part of the base system is available. It *does* technologically
have a *lot* to do with the netinst one.

It was a perfectly reasonable debugging attempt by Christian to see
whether he could reproduce it by using the image that was easiest for
him to try.

He didn't ask you to perform a test with a netboot image specifically,
but rather asked you to perform a test with a daily build, to see
whether the problem still existed in the latest version. Since these are
easiest to test with netboot images, it's not unreasonable for him to
point you to the netboot image -- though you may want to use something
else, and report on that.

The fact that you *think* you know what you're talking about does not,
in any way, imply that you do; and it *certainly* does not give you the
right to be rude, to start calling people names, and to tell them that
they are incompetent.

If you still believe you do, then kindly fuck off.

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
