I don't know what to think about the new symfony installer,
seems bit redundant, why not use composer not good enough?
Really don't see the benefit of a installer like this at all.
@Doni, the main advantages of this new installer are the following:

* It's orders of magnitude faster (about 10 seconds vs. minutes when Composer cache is empty)
* It doesn't ask you anything (Composer installation asks you several questions and asks you to provide some configuration parameter values).
* It allows you to have a global "symfony" command in your system which in the future it could provide more useful commands for Symfony.
Most points I don't agree with,
* Faster installation great but not that valuable, if it becomes issue there ways with composer to make it faster.
* I like the questions also you can disable them during installation.
* I already have composer installed globally

Finally we had a good package manager for PHP and now we going the same route as NodeJS with it's army of package managers. Just going to make things more confusing I think.
