I think we have official images on Google Compute Engine now as well

I was going to say that this should mention both the CD/DVD ISO, and memsticks, but I remember now we are hoping to consolidate those.

It might make sense for this item to be expanded a little bit. It is likely the 'default' case, and maybe should mention that it is most likely what the user wants

The DVD ISOs and memsticks are (or should be?) described further on (ie below, in the section on preparing the installation media).

As for expanding it - well, it says "The rest of this chapter describes the fourth case" just a paragraph after that. It's already expanded into a whole chapter :-)

Agreed on the default case. The "usual desktop" might suffice, though? Perhaps I could move it to be the first item...
