>From a UX point of view I'm not sure I want to unleash this on unsuspecting new users. It's powerful and the real value is when you're trying to share workspace setup within a team, like we're trying to do internally at QNX with our IDE team, or to get CDT contributors up and running. I'm not sure I'd even call it an installer. I had a more traditional install workflow in mind that would guide them through the decisions they need to make with big icons and well chosen text. Something between what Mentor Graphics has produced and the Eclipse Marketplace Client. At the end of the day, it's about selecting IUs and installing them, but without the user needing to know what that means.

I was waiting for a video recording from the recent Eclipse IDD in Berlin but it isn't available, yet.
