Pretty much my opinion.
I've been installing linux of various flavors since text mode installers were in vogue. I didn't find it all that hard.
But there should be a First Timer Option that presents ONE screen of basic choices that gets them going. The problem with that is there are just a lot of choices that have to be made and without some basic assumptions about what the newbie wants you just can't do a good job of that.
On one page you are told that:
* You detect or select Country Selection / Language
* You get EITHER Dual Boot or Wipe your whole hard drive - nothing gets saved
* You get a choice of KDE XFCE yadda yadda and yadda (All of them best guess for newbies - they can get install the rest later).
* Forced File system selection (no risky file systems like BTRFS, you get bog standard ext4)
Everything else is defaulted to the best working possibility. If it can't pre-determine the best working video drivers for the installed hardware, or it can't figure out a safe dual-boot strategy, it just declines to do the install with apologies, and doesn't do any damages.
The other possibility for the totall Newbie User would to to just have Architech download and install a pre-built machine and then (after a brief explanation) start the VirtualBox installer.
But I have to ask: Is the absolute Newbie the target market for Architech?
