    It may have "exiting new features", though I bet it still overwrites your MBR without asking, Windows style... They should at least be using the old Anaconda until this one comes out of alpha.

        i literally don't even understand what youre complaining about... It HAS TO overwrite the MBR to install grub. Also the new anaconda has been out of 'alpha' for awhile.

          no, it doesn't

          (also anaconda has been filled with bugs for ever)

            Is Michael being endorsed by Red Hat or it just generates most clicks than any other distro? We are getting at least an article every day about Fedora with no contents whatsoever.
            inb4 "Fedorea dominated Linux news this month" post.

              How else do you expect people to be able to boot the newly installed system? Every distro with a user friendly installer does this (and no, using another distro's grub is not a valid answer as majority of users wouldn't have another distro besides Fedora installed).

              Debian (at least in expert mode) installer offers you a choice whether to install grub to mbr - are you sure Fedora's installer doesn't do the same?

                i was responding to the "HAS TO"
                you can have any other bootloader in MBR and grub on a partition, but anaconda apparently does not support other OS-es controlling the MBR

                Debian is about choice, so ofc it supports it

                  Enough trolled, kids.
                  Kind of nice how fast they roll out releases, but I still want rolling release like on Arch (no i dont want rawhide, thats self suicide)

                    is there any other kind of suicide ?
                    why don't you just use arch, or thumbleweed ?
