I was wondering about that case but seeing GRUB from other
distributions show the possibility.
Asking what fonts can be used on Anaconda will be helpful. The current
incarnation feels so legacy.
Totally agreed, I'll pop into #anaconda and see if they have any ideas
about some of the constraints there.

True. Looking at user issue on Anaconda will be a start as written on
the wiki. During the process I will learn more about usability
assessment on such complex project.
Yep definitely, once F14 is out the door I definitely want to start
working with the Anaconda team and post stuff here on-list as well as on
the wiki. If you want to start, that would be awesome - we should
probably map out what screens pop up in what order, DVD vs Live Media,
and note any confusions or issues we encounter when running through it.
It's a good thing though I think to be looking at how other distros/OSs
do it today, and to start thinking about the visual design, so thanks
for getting started already Luya!
