Some remarks:

1. The first window is by default too much chunky (see [1]).
2. It would be nice for the text strings that appear to be copyable (in
   order people can more easily report troubles).
3. The text strings are a mixture of English, indeed, and German
   strings: is it what you mean by native ones (I expected native ones
   to be French ones :)
4. I guess the text strings translations would be similar to the
   previous installer so we won't have to translate them again.
5. For the moment, I must admit I don't see the benefit compared to the
   previous installer.
