Adding a cronjob selection to the installer

For enthusiasts of WordPress users, it would be conceivably more pleasant to be able to outsource the cronjob already during the installation.
Setting this performance relevant setting manually each time in the config is unattractive.

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac!

Thanks for the ticket, sorry it took so long for someone to get back to you.

Just to clarify, is this about the ALTERNATE_WP_CRON constant? I would say this option seems a bit too technical to include during installation, and would go against the Decisions, not Options philosophy of WordPress. That said, I'm curious to see what others think.

Agreed. This isn't the kind of setting that most users are able to make an informed decision about during the installation phase.
