    Arrow Advanced Option: Deselect items before installation

    Seen alot of back and forth about people wanting to be able to deselect or not install certain things when doing a fresh install. Others saying to suck it up and install everything and then remove the software you don't want or just do a minimal install. Was wondering via a Poll what people think, if you think it would be better to keep things as it is or during install deselect from what is normally installed and then after installation be able to install what you want. So if you want Chrome as your browser, deselect Firefox, install Ubuntu, and then after installation install Chrome.

    I think it should stay as it is. For most people it provides an excellent starting platform, after installation you can remove and add as you wish.
    You will never make everyone happy anyway.

    At the end of the day, you also have the Minimal CD as install option and just add the software you want.
