I just tried it and I have three comments, not sure if these are bugs, or
if this is intended:

1) when choosing not to install the service, the data directory will not be
initialized even if it's option is selected. I gues the reason is, that
without a running backend the installer cannot do the initdb, but without
the service there is no way to start the backend?

2) I did not find UNICODE in the available encodings when initializing the
data directory.

3) I think it would be a good idea to offer an additional option to install
a default database & user so that one can work with the system right after
the installation has finished.
