  1. Ok so the server install is terminal based. and the link you out up is for a desktop install, not a true server. I don’t see any of the options for different server types for the desktop install. i.e. ssh server, samba server, and the like. Debian give you all those options and a gui desktop. or the option of a terminal install for basic server. If you feel more comfortable with gui for a server install I would try debian.

    Just saying.

  2. From the screenshots, I don’t see anything different about the installer from 12.04 LTS. This is probably a good thing.
