Once we get there, this is my vision. I'd love to see a full
knoppix-like cd that people can boot their computers on and use their
computer. Then the installer can be non-modal, so they can do stuff
while gentoo is installing (unlike anaconda, etc).
My own personal preferance is to use pygtk for the installer, as I have
experience with it. (I don't think anyone on the project has experience
with pyqt, but I could be wrong). I'd also just like to see the
installer just be a package in portage, that way people can easily make
their own live CDs using whatever desktop (or apps) they want. But
those are my fanciful goals (long-term).
