    I'm annoyed I never thought of doing it that way.

    my current install was done using the install script, one of the biggest problems I have currently is installing on a 27" 4k monitor, it can be really hard keeping track of what you are doing, i've chosen the wrong settings a few times

    It won't be long before the only Linux which is actually tough to install is (B)LFS.

    I've always had a soft spot for TUIs. A good TUI gives you everything you need, without lots of graphical frippery and obfuscation.

    I'll give it a shot the next time I'm reinstalling a box, just for kicks, even if the destined OS isn't Arch.

    Would be cool if you could install Btrfs /root and XFS /home or something like that with this installer.

Not gonna lie, I've never liked nor felt comfortable using the BTRFS tools so it'll be nice having the installer handle that annoyance for me.
    A custom filesystem/partition setup and bootloader (f2fs/refind) are the only reason I manually installed arch last time.

    Does archinstall allow for that now?
