I noticed there is a VMWare image on the livedvd. Not many of us will need that, and those who do can download it off the web. It doesn't need to be on the DVD.
How about including kernel sources on the dvd instead? That might actually be useful for some of us. On the last release there was no included ethernet driver for my NIC and I was unable to get it working because I couldn't compile the driver. Thankfully, the ATL2 driver is included in loop2, but I'm sure many of us are still using uncommon hardware and require kernel sources.
