Hates 3: Install not intuitive
Ubuntu and Mint give users a choice of erasing the entire hard drive, or installing the new OS alongside the existing one with a simple slider mechanism to determine how much space to allocate. A third option, a custom install, offers a list of available drives and the free space on each, so the user can decide exactly where the operating system will go. With Fedora 18, there were no simple alternatives, and we needed to reclaim space by manually resizing individual partitions. In addition, there was no upgrade option, even though our computer was already running Fedora 17.
