I disagree. There is nothing that can compare to using bash scripts or bash commands directly. Editing a conf file directly affects a program to make it yours.This installer has gone through an interesting update. It now runs over OpenBox and has discarded the graphical element.
It is now more like a bunch of command line scripts and more transparent.
I have to agree with your point. It is not against the Arch Way. But to many of us it feels like it is.I disagree with most of you. The Arch way has never been about the gui, and this removes the entire concept of system configures emphasis--plus learning from the installation becomes moot by this method.
Not completely true. If you add "For some people" at the beginning of that sentence then yes. But not everyone wants a shell interface only. Heck I am using Ubuntu's Unity on Arch.The whole point of using Arch Linux is to be able to use the shell. This makes no logical sense.
