Whonix Setup Wizard Feedback Required!

troubadour has created Whonix Setup Wizard, that will replace the terminal whonixsetup when running a graphical Whonix-Gateway or Whonix-Workstation. We need your feedback on whether our approach seems usable. Please leave feedback in the forums. Link to forum discussion:
https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,974

Please keep discussion limited to usability and move technical discussion to the technical thread.

Have a look at the following screenshots.
Click to enlarge the screenshots.

At first boot, before starting KDE (if using KDE), “whonix-setup-wizard locale_settings” will be started. You will only see this little window and the rest will be black, because at this time no desktop is load yet. Mouse and keyboard will be available.

Language Selection 1
whonix-setup-wizard xinit 1
You can imagine a bit better how it would look like in the following screenshots.

Language selection. (Same menu as in KDE system settings.)
whonix-setup-wizard xinit 2

Keyboard layout selection. (Same menu as in KDE system settings.)

whonix-setup-wizard xinit 3
Language Selection End
whonix-setup-wizard xinit 4
After a desktop environment has been start, “whonix-setup-wizard setup” will be automatically started. It begins with the disclaimer.
