Easy installation would increase the retention among new Qt users.
The component tree in the Qt Installer UI is a complicated beast and new users have seldom a clear idea, which components they need to install to have a complete working installation.
If we provided a default installation option to the user, it would be easier to start for new users.
The installer UI should provide two options: default installation and custom installation.
The default installation installs the basic Qt desktop installation:
- In Windows, the MinGW compiler + Qt libraries, excluding Qt WebEngine, as is not available for MinGW
- In macOS and Linux, the Cland/GCC-based Qt libraries will be installed.
The installer should remember the selection. If a user has chosen custom installation, it will be checked by default, the next time user runs the installer.
