Fedora Live USB Creator is getting a facelift that should make it much easier to use (see [https://github.com/gnome-design-team/gnome-mockups/tree/master/USB-boot-creator mockups]). It should cover the complete work flow of creating an install media. It provides information (descriptions, screenshots,...) about flavors and variants of Fedora to help the user to pick the right one for their usage, downloads the ISO, and copies it to a USB flash disk. The goal of this change is to provide this tool as the primary download option on getfedora.org and create a mechanism to store and update information (descriptions, screenshots,...) for the tool. This requires work not only from the change owners, but also from other groups (websites, design, marketing, releng teams).

LiveUserCreator as Primary Downloadable

Summary

The new Fedora Liver USB Creator that is being finished has an overhauled, more user friendly interface. Because USB sticks are the most common way to install Fedora, it should be the primary download option. It cover the whole installation media creation, it lets the user pick the right flavor of Fedora, downloads its image, and copies it to a USB drive.

Current status

Detailed Description

Fedora Live USB Creator is getting a facelift that should make it much easier to use (see mockups). It should cover the complete work flow of creating an install media. It provides information (descriptions, screenshots,...) about flavors and variants of Fedora to help the user to pick the right one for their usage, downloads the ISO, and copies it to a USB flash disk. The goal of this change is to provide this tool as the primary download option on getfedora.org and create a mechanism to store and update information (descriptions, screenshots,...) for the tool. This requires work not only from the change owners, but also from other groups (websites, design, marketing, releng teams).

Benefit to Fedora

It will provide an easy-to-use tool for all major platforms (Linux, Windows, Mac OS X) which will be offered to users as the primary download option. That should generally lower the barrier for potential users to try and install Fedora.
