The battle was never lost, it just had no chances to
begin with.  They(Fedora Developers) were going to do
away with the "Everything Install" anyway.  The
arguments for and against it were discussed, but the
end result was the same.  When Fedora Core 5 comes
out, I wonder how many people are going to complain
about exactly this issue?

Too many clicks to install everything per group and in
the end, everything was not installed**?  

I just hope that they do not drop tetex, and tetex*
from the base cd's/dvd.  Yum installing tetex, would
probably take a long time through dialup.  

Many things are getting fixed, while other things are
done away with.  It is hard to please everyone.
