Absolutely. The Installation Experience is one of the first contacts
with the distribution for most people¹, and since we all know that the
first five seconds decide whether it's gonna be love or hate, we
should not be trying THIS hard to be a failure in this very important
part of the relationship our product is building with the user.

this is most probably the vast minority
