I wrote an alternative Debian installer. It's a toy, but you can read about it on my blog.
@liw welcome to the alternate debian installer club
I'm the founder but also a recent member.
@joeyh It would be a fun hobby, except I keep having fights with grub and grub-installer. Pretty much everything else is easy.
@liw yes, 10 foot pole should be deployed to carefully manipulate a 100 foot pole
