I know that I'm not a dev, but I soon hope to be. However, I have a
lot of experience writing installers for Gentoo (GLIS). I totally
disagree with picking a target group for a gentoo installer. I think
an installer can very easily appeal to all groups. The only difference
in installers between the easy installer and the advanced installer is
the amount of defaults that are chosen for the user. This is really
not hard to implement.
