Graphical Debian Installer interface, and me

June 20, 2006

A while ago I presented some ideas, and graphics for Debian's graphical Installer which will be released for Etch. Actually, that page reflects the final graphics I presented to the debian-installer guys, with most being used. I quieted down as I became a bit confused on the entire thing, because it involved some constraints (either technical, or otherwise) which I didn't foresee, and couldn't work them out on my head. Also, at the time I didn't have a clear head for it, for various other reasons.

So time passed, and last night I decided to continue this. I had re-started thinking about it before, but never with the same commitment as now. So I think I've managed to work out some sketches of how would a perfect interface for D-I, within its constraints, be.

Constraints which I agree should stay, since, for instance, the graphical D-I will just be a different fronted to the installer. Another debian developer has also started making a web interface for d-i!).
