Homer's nucular reactor controlling bird could install Debian. Just keep
pecking at the enter key and you'll get there with sensible defaults.

Choosing what packages to install is done via roles or tasks, so you just
pick "Workstation" or "Mail server" or whatever and it'll choose packages
for you. Or you can choose packages individually. Either way, you don't
have to wait for the packages to be compiled.

Of course if you want fancy stuff like encrypted filesystems, LVM, a
custom partitioning scheme, it can do that too. It's all driven through
a menu-based interface. I haven't tried the graphical installer so I
don't know whether it's any different.
