I see it is not possible to make perfect live cd for everyone desktop users, sys admins, developers....
Why not to separate these groups and prepare 2 versions on fc13 live cd, for example desktop and developers edition?
It is stupid idea, but if U think about this....it might make sense. People who don't do programming, don't care about eclipse, apache, sqlite, php, python and other stuff. Developers and students, particularly last one would appreciate system ready to work for example with django, php on apache, mysql, eclipse, netbeans. I am not sure if we can make apache or mysql running from live cd, please frogive me my stupidity :)
