This has already been changed to different wording in (not yet released) 
Preview 16

I had the same thought. Discussed with Jim and changed the wording in Preview

It is the disclaimer Jim wanted. He may be fine with changing it.

Jim didn't like that either. Already changed for 16.

This actually was fixed in P15. In P14 I added some automatic partitioning in 
normal mode and changed the wording. I forgot to pull the (er). I don't usually 
replace on all the files on the build floppy image with the github sources on 
my HD. I had forgot to update the language files in 15. Oops.

Did it not prompt for a reboot after selections partition?

Anyway, I should probably put a screen in there that says it is doing it after 
the question and before the reboot prompt.

Humm, does it exhibit the same behavior when just booted from the floppy image? 
It has to be one of three issues. I will try to do some more testing in that

Me too. But, Jim wants plain blue. So, 16 uses that. Easy to change in theme 
file though.
