- Network twice?
- Yep, first time is the network for the installer, we list it in the 1st hub in case you change your mind and want to change how you set it up --Duffy 18:45, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
- Storage is in flux right now... (mo's comment)
Welcome and Language
- Can we use geo-location to suggest languages?
- We won't have a network connection this early, so it would be pretty difficult, wouldn't it? But we need to ask language up front so the user can read and understand the installer itself. --Duffy 18:46, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
- Can language, keyboard, and time zone be a single screen?
- That's a lot of information for one screen. It would be a really tight fit. We're trying to model these after the GNOME upstream dialogs so that whether or not the user configures something in the installer or on the desktop, they have a similar experience and don't have too much trouble working with varying dialogs.

Storage Filter / Network Devices
- These only show up if you click "Add a disk" on #9-1-2
- I assume zSeries tab would only appear on Z
Storage Sanity Check
- Can it shrink NTFS?
