@megaman - You are missing the point. It’s not about which browser, or what you can/can’t do after the fact. The point is that the Cnchi Hover help is not helpful. Some is useless. Some is unclear. Some is confusing.
For non-expert Linux users it’s like being in a new city without street signs, or with confusing street signs. It’s not pleasant, and you make wrong turns. I think you are looking only through the lens of an expert user who already knows their stuff.
All I originally suggested is for someone to go though the Hover help and actually make it helpful. Probably requires much less typing than this thread.
@anarch - Fair enough on the Chrome. The rest still stands. I reckon more selection at_install_time would be awesome and would really stand out.
On your KISS comment, you CAN have it both ways. Don’t think like 95% of the population that you can’t. Eg: Have a Cnchi screen with an option like “Trust us? - Just install the defaults!” or if not, go into a more detailed selection screen.
“Simple things should be simple. Hard things should be possible” - Alan Kay, the inventor of the over-layed window paradigm.
I swear 99% of developers think that if they achieve one, they can’t achieve the other. YOU OFTEN CAN IF YOU TRY.
I for one quite dislike the process of having to install a lot of extra stuff post-first-login. I would be over the moon if I could go through a ‘tick-a-box’ list at install time, hit “Go!” and come back in an hour to a system with most/all of the major stuff I want already installed - And knowing that it didn’t waste any time/space DL’ing stuff I didn’t want. The Software Centre sounds great, but why not just list the top 40 or so major packages at install time in the short term? (Harder than it sounds?)
I am sure Antergos has competing priorities. But I thought welcoming/leading new users cleanly and standing out from the other distros would be up there somewhere.
