Nothing. Just the continousely intents to post off topic in this
thread made me crazy. I hate it if someone answers questions I did
not asked and tell me afterwards what I should have asked. Sometimes,
even if very seldomly, I start shouting under this conditions.
Feel free to do anything including keep this subject for a thread which
has nothing to do with the topic of the subject.

Instead I should enforce people to invent the fourth wheel because
we had recently a thread about three different installers and we
really need four to get a nice car. But please mark the discussion
by a sane topic that I will be able to safe my spare time for things
I'm interested in.

Discussion is great and I would love if it would end in a good
result but please mark the topic like:
"New generation installer: Live CD approach"

Somebody who mostly tries to follow netiquette. Sorry for that.
