Hi all,
In my view it doesn't matter what exactly is on the live CD - a kernel with a Desktop GUI and Internet browser and connection are more than enough. The most important think is how the user is going to proceed after installing Linux.

After installing the live CD on the harddisk the user shall get knowing somehow that the first thing to do next is neither AbyWord nor GIMP, nor Movie Player but rather to place properly ALL of its computer hardware. Everything needing a plugin of any third parties, not supported by Open Source should be installed and the contradictions with SELinux resolved ad hoc.

Some of the things on the live CD may be omitted to release a space of 100-150 kb to place there a video with instructions and presentation how to proceed further.

As far as GIMP is concerned, the GIMP itself may be reduced on the live CD to a basic GUI and some basic image processing. People who intent to use GIMP may install whatever they like in addition.

If you're going to make statements like that, you're going to have to
provide a patch or a list of those "other things" that can be dropped
that will match the space savings of dropping gimp.

Hi all,

time for another 'Fit and Finish' test day. This time, we want to look
at issues and use cases surrounding anything you can plug into your
computer, be it a camera, a phone, a usb stick, or whatever gizmos you
have at home... 

Join us in #fedora-fit-and-finish on Freenode, on Aug 11 (next Tuesday).

For more information about this test day, see
