We are talking about a live cd installation, yes? You can close the

We were talking about anaconda. And I still don't know a sane (aka "no
manual chroot") way to go from livecd into the fresh installed
environment. You surely agree that users that know about chroot are probably not the
ones adressed with the "hey, cool, in this linux thingy i do not need to
reboot after install" feature, don't you?

I never suggested otherwise but my point is simply that describing the
current experience as being forced to reboot doesn't sound appropriate.
You are free to continue working on the live environment post
installation unlike in regular installations. That is a significant
difference, IMO.

I agree that is a significant already existing benefit of Fedora's LiveOS. I would just hope you would agree that the leap to not having to deal with the chroot, and just being 'already in your installed system' is as significant a difference as well.

peace...
