The problem is that with a CD sized target, there just isn't enough
space to both A) have a generally useful system for doing
web/email/etc.. and B) have room to showcase grate software that is
generally only available on Linux (Firefox isn't a great example as you
can run that on MSFT and OSX just fine, why go to the effort of running
Fedora for it?).
