Lessons from 1 million Nix installs


First of all thanks for the installer that is heads and shoulder better than the official one.
It was so fast that the first time, I thought it had not run at all. The uninstall plan is also very welcome, I regularly help users get rid of their old nix installs (for a better one!) and this helps a lot.

I didn’t know the installer phoned home. Is it only when the install fails or for all installs ? if not I would prefer the former or a way to disable it since it might be frown upon in a professionnal settings.
