I agree that a pre-install quiz is a poor solution to this perceived
problem. This doesn't seem like an appropriate role for the installer.
What is to stop people from grabbing a list of correct answers before
installation begins? How will public relations be able to put an
up-spin on the installer not trusting people to be l33t enough to use
it? Not good for the community, me thinks.
Gentoo has always come with the disclaimer of being good for learning
about Linux and open source software. I don't see why the suggestion of
prior Linux experience will change with the advent of the installer.
That being said, I know nothing about the installer other than the bits
I've picked up on list. Please forgive me if this is spam.
