Giving the user that choice is the current Mandriva policy, and I
don't see an intention to change it in Mageia. It's actually stated in
the Mageia Values.

Personally, I *like* my OS installers boring. For the following reasons:
1) I should be using them only rarely
2) when I do, I should focus on what I am doing, not on the looks of
the installer.

So I like a clean-looking installer with a focus on reliability,
functionality, reliability, and more reliability.

Just my tuppence.
