Requirements of Ubuntu Server Installer

Registered by Robbie Williamson on 2008-11-21

The speed and simplicity of the installation process is key to providing a "Just Works" experience. We want to offer the best default configuration we can for Ubuntu Server, and offer the ability to set-up optional pieces (tasks), so we must balance these two areas. We firmly do not want a second stage after the installer has run. The main areas of interest are looking at: Comparing our installation to the current ones by other distros with server configurations, Examining whether our installation meets the common use cases (means specifying them in a specification), and Changing the installation to meet anything that we are currently missing or over-complicating
