Hands-on with Ubiquity and Calamares: Two Linux installers side-by-side

First, what are these installers? Manjaro uses the latest version of the Calamares distribution-independent installer. I have watched the development and steady improvement of Calamares on Manjaro (and KaOS) for quite some time now, and I have been quite impressed. It has become a fast, reliable and graphically pleasing utility.

Linux Mint 18 uses the Ubuntu Ubiquity installer.
