So I gave this a quick test in the VM and my conclusion is that the
installer is still way too broken even for an alpha release.
Selecting a language? Crash.
Telling it to create a disk layout at the review screen? Crash.

(Both are in bugzilla).

Finishing to fight with it to get the live install done -> system does not boot.

<rant>Unrelated to the alpha but the UI still looks very unpolished
(ex: why does the installation screen still say "PERSONALIZATION" ) ?
And "Quit" on the live image should not reboot the system but just
close anaconda IMO. </rant>
