To be more explicit -- between user testing, bug reports, mailing lists,
forums, etc we realized that just about everyone picked "Custom" because
they figured they had something that made them different or special.

Realistically, we actually still have install options like this -- it's
just now more about picking a live image to start from rather than
selecting something within the installer.  And if you're doing the
install from DVD or from the network, chances are that you're exactly
the sort of person that would be picking custom :-)  "Desktop-y" users
should be going more for the live images and the download page is trying
to push them in that direction[1]

thus far
