Even users with high-speed connections want to stay independent and
free, relying on a network-connection is unsafe.

I want my backup of my OS in my hand and not on a web-server.
But I also prefer web-installation because I got immediately up-to-date
files.





Relying on a network-connection for installation is like relying on the
Windows-Activation and Windows live-update. If you need it, you can be
sure, that it will NOT work! Maybe they deny the access, delete the all
the files through a accident, or some stupid captain cut off your
backbone...*haha*
