    I prefer that version of the installer too. My favourite one is the ncurses installer of Slackware. It hasn't changed and it works fine.
    Back in the days there was one init system for Linux. And then some distributions went their own path: Gentoo with OpenRC but still allowing sysvinit and later systemd and runit, Fedora with systemd, Ubuntu with upstart before adopting systemd, other distributions came with runit or s6.
    Nowadays only a few distributions offer you a choice of init systems during the installation. I will mention two but there are others: Devuan and Gentoo.

    Would be interesting if an upgrade all the way up to the latest version. Version by version upgrade.
