Hi guys,

I am currently updating a MDV 2010.2 with MGA 1 RC (32 bits).
So far, so good (the install will take more than one hour, on a PIV).

I like pretty much the artwork. Very good job!

I noted a few details that are not crucial but may help making mga better :)

1) When I launched the installation (using a DVD), I was a bit affraid
when I saw only Install in the boot menu, no update choice.

In some ways, it makes sense since MGA 1 will be the first release of
mageia but I guess that the majority of mageia adopters will migrate
from mandriva so I wonder if an entry "Install/update" would not be
better than just Install, since the mandriva update is properly detected

2) I noted something disturbing on the install screen: the rectangular
area dedicated to Installation with the images and the progress bar is
very close to the right side. I had the impression that I was mising
some part of the screen.

That might be dictated by the size needed to display all the information
but IMHO it would be much nicer if the space from the right side could
be similar to the space between the left side and the menu.

My 2 cents,
