I know you guys have taken a lot of flack about your choice of installer, among them DistroTube on YouTube who first got me interested in learning OB. I like DT but here i disagree. I’d just like to say i LOVE ABIF! Every distro should use it!
For one thing i like to multiboot linux distros on my main machine. Every arch-based distro i have installed makes certain other distros, esp. other arch distros, inaccessable from grub when i reboot. I assume at least some of the issue is with the installer. I have had no such problems with AL and ABIF. It takes awhile to install grub, but when finished it sees and boots my other OSs no problem.
Secondly, it allows me to install, or not, select popular programs. I come into the distro without alot of junk I’ll never use, several programs i find necessary, and only a handful of others to install before i am fully up and running.
Finally, though it may not be as “pretty” as some installers, i find it eay to understand and follow. And i am far from a guru. I would suggest those who cannot follow the ABIF installer are probably not ready for the challenges of Openbox, or really Arch in general. When it comes to OB and Arch i think you appeal to the “masses” by using something that ends in booting a distro that just “works” without a lot of fluff the user didn’t want. ABIF does that very well. Kudos!
