A report from pgCon 2013
Little things that matter in language design
If you use the graphical version of the installer, you will be prompted for multiple things on one screen, in cases where they are independent (such as entering and confirming a password).
Entering the full name and then user name are still done as separate steps since the latter defaults to the first part of the full name.
BTW, this might be a good place to point out that, if you prefer an Ubuntu-style sudo for root, Squeeze will set that up if you do not enter a root password.
Debian "Squeeze" release in sight
