I agree - I think that whilst features like this may be appealing to the
goals of Ubuntu, they do not necessarily match the goals of the CentOS
project. Anyone capable of installing that other popular OS should not
have any problems with the CentOS installer. New users tend to struggle
more with the concepts of disk partitioning, freeing space for the
installation (if performing a dual boot install which is presumably the
target audience for such an installer) and generally using the software
once installed. I think anyone that *needs* a WUBI-type installer is
going to struggle to configure and use CentOS once installed.
JMHO, but I would think other stuff like a ServerCD (or rebuilding
FastTrack packages) would be higher on the project's list of priorities.
