We might want to make sure users actually can install it first and that 
means testing on a real hardware.

The good news are that I can finally boot into the desktop live image 
( contains kernel which has disable TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE )

The bad..

Trying to run liveinst or anaconda fails ( 3 bugs filed )

Out of curiosity how do you expect users to set their preferences in 
Gnome Shell I could not find an easy way to access it so I ended up 
opening up a terminal to set my keyboard layout.
