... how is that significantly different than what we have now?

Now:

- user downloads DVD iso
- user picks from arbitrary set of software
- additional software can be selected from network
- user installs

New:
- user downloads DVD live iso
- user partitions, has to include space for all other software on DVD (!)
- user installs
- user reboots
- user can pick from arbitary set of software to add on
- additional software can be selected from network

How is this better?
