Seriously though...there was a bunch of consternation about what
represented 'install everything', there was emphasis on reducing the
packages that are part of core and moving stuff out to extras which is
really where people are wanting to install everything...not from core.

Using pirut (Add/Remove software) program on groups is a lot better to get everything when you right click and select all packages in the group. I tried this for the games selection and pulled in 46 game packages altogether. The children have a lot of options now to stay in Linux mode. This feature works on Internet package retrievals excellent.

The everything install is not really missing. The choice is a few clicks away vs. one button to pull in all packages available in core.
