    That would be function of the installation program. Many use "off the shelf" installation/uninstallation programs to install their software. I would like best if windows would have full verbose installation.

    I think Cliff S is saying that's the type of screen he wants to see when installing Windows 10. I would prefer a screen like that also. The spinning dots don't tell you anything.

    The old way and way Linux does it is totally verbose, line by line as it's being installed with dots behind the line that show progress of that file.

    When I install a program or even the OS I like to know what's going on. IMO if a problem arises it just may help to fix it if you know where in the install the problem happened.

    Arch has a little icon of the 1980's pacman video game character that plods along the dots eating them up. Actually it is just the capital and minuscule letter "C" but that is still pretty cool.

    It doesn't take a lot of programming to let the user know that the program is still running, and to NOT start pressing keys.

    Why that doesn't occur to so many programmers, is beyond comprehension.
    The "old way" of doing things goes against the modern design trend of hiding as much as possible from the user (information, controls, system status, options, etc.).

    I also suspect that "modern" programmers have zero training in UI design.
