Description of problem:
It would be great if anaconda could provide some small games
during installation, so the user may enjoy his installation a bit more.

Linux is a powerful platform, and anaconda can definetly provide
a small game like tetris.

The games should NOT be cpu intensive, or 3D based.

A tetris or similar game would enhance the overal experience of
the user, not to mention magazine reviews!!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fedora
2. during install, you'll be bored looking at the screen

Actual Results:  boring installation

Expected Results:  interesting/playful installation

Additional info:

It would be nice if there was a button to load a game, or some
small pull-down menu with a list of small games.

Thank you.

Not going to happen.  This is one of those things where doing anything
is going to make someone unhappy or ask for their favorite game which
just doesn't scale.  It's an OS installation, not a gaming console.

I understand the sensitive nature of this matter.

But could you please do a simple test-run by having
a simple game in rawhide/test releases only?

So we could measure the general public responce and
see if its worth having?

With all of the constraints on my time, that's not likely to have a
chance to happen and it's nowhere on my list of priorities.

Understood, thank you for your time.
