Ah well, i guess i wasn't really clear, i do not mean make another one, i 
meant adapting one to fit the usability stuff.

Also, i thought this was on for mageia 2, but i was mistaken, only installer 
redesign was listed on the features to be done.

it's true that maybe i shouldn't ask people to work on it, but if they aren't 
doing anything else, nothing prevents them from making it, besides, if a real 
usability study is done, this takes ages to complete, and then it could be 
ready for mageia 3.

oh and it's not because everything can be done, that there isn't a perhaps 
more suitable way.

In any case, i myself don't have the time to work on this one, but i still 
listed some stuff that IMHO can be done better.
