    Light & Dark theme selection in the installer is not a good idea. When installing an operating system people tend to be nervous about making choices & if they are doing the right thing.
    By having light/dark option, there is potential for people to worry about what choice is correct & if it can be changed later. So, it is best to just have the essential install options only. It just adds more steps & questions to the process needlessly. Setting your theme, desktop pic & dock etc is all part of the personal preferences you do later, after breathing a sigh of relief that it worked.

    They should remove the ripple effect from the buttons. It looked ugly when even google had announced material-ui for Android 5.0. They really shouldn't go with material-design. It hurts me in my phone & don't wanna get hurt in my desktop too

    I really think Ubuntu should move the user account setup to the OOTB experience.

    TLDR: Flutter is a software development kit designed to make creating "beautiful UIs easy".

    Doesn't seem dangerous at the moment, although be sure to read the source before using it.

    Uh… Feren OS uses Calamares… and as I teased Feren OS might someday get an installer of its own, mainly to redefine the installation process in the vision of Feren OS, so… yeah no Feren OS definitely isn't getting this installer anytime soon.

    It would be very cool for cross platform developer once Flutter is officially supported to all desktop OS.

    Is there anyone that ever chooses light mode over dark anymore?
    Seems like they could just do away with light modes altogether.

    So that means, that Ubuntu comes with Flutter preinstalled and you can develop Flutter Apps for and in Ubuntu?

    It would be nice if I didn't need to wear sunglasses to install an operating system. Yet another Pure White GUI.

    What's wrong with the old installer? The Flutter one has the exact same text and layout, only with Flutter.
    You can achieve the same thing with the old one, in a day's work.

    It seems similar to pop installer maybe there's development between system 76 and Ubuntu? POP OS is based off Ubuntu
