I just checked the poll... seems like I'm the only one who prefers a text-based one for now (vs. 5 votes for a GUI)

I'm not opposed to a GUI. I'm just warning that a GUI poses many problems that a text-dialog-based installer (analogous to Ubuntu installer) wouldn't have - both in terms of interoperability and developer friendliness. In short: a GUI will be much more complicated to *develop*, while not offering any benefits during *use*. After all, we're talking about a distro whose purpose is to debrick a Kindle, not a 24/7 desktop OS.

But yeah, that's just my 2 cents
