I noticed in the installer every partition you create must be formatted, frankly this suck for /home if you are coming from another distro. Why can't we just add a /home without formating it?

I gotta second that one. For years I've kept /home on a separate partition or disk making upgrades/new OS' easy. Once E was installed I just edited a few files and fixed it but formating my /home is a *big* no-no.

I also agree.
Just installed the 1.9.51 dev. on my eeepc, and it even makes you format after clicking the 'I've already partitioned my disks' option... What's the point?
