I noticed that there wasn't a desktop icon for it weeks ago, but it does
show up as an application you can run. If that isn't good enough, then maybe
sticking it in with the favorites on live images would be a way to make it
more obvious. That won't work for fallback mode though. For that you'd
probably want to add it to the panel.
Well installing an OS isn't an application in the classical sense; and
even I didn't expect it there,
so I doubt many users would. The icon on the desktop was more or less
directly discoverable that told you that
you can install from the live cd at all.
