Why is it not good?

In any case, the wizard dialog is not really that flexible, you might
not want to use that if it works against you. It was intended to make it
easy to implement a consistent looking and behaving wizard dialog, but
it comes with its own limitations. According to some developers it's not
that difficult to write your own, especially if your wizard needs to do
some interesting things instead of progressing linearly.
