To tell you the truth, I'd probably rather run Sabayon BE if is was KDE based, no gnome, and had the following apps
K3b w/laCie (lightscribe support)
ALL KDE packages
working network drivers (wireless & NIC including PCMCIA)
WPA_supplicant (this should be a given....)
SCSI emluated (no more IDE crap) (also a given)
Working Alarm program that is flexable (preferable Kcron, working as a user please!)
GIMP or GIMPshop
SUSE style Kicker
Live Help (of course!)
SuperKaramba w/AeroG style theme monitor CPU, RAM, DISK, TIME, CALENDER
Dark Theme (bright colors are hard on the eyes)
Elisa Media Center
Hugin Panorama stitcher
Abiword (use it much more than Open Office Writer, I like it better)
Yakuake (comes in handy)
syslog & etc.
Virus Scanner w/GUI
good videocard support (like we have now w/autodetection)
maybe some good video editing software
Working Texas Instruments Card Reader!! (loop2b has the module running but rules and crap needs to be added for it to work, that sux!)
and some pretty Server admin apps
There is going to be a x86_64 version right??!?!
and whatever else I mostlikely missed that a server NEEDS
I personally don't think there should be as much bulk in this edition as the DVD release.
I also think we should mix it up. Have a stable base, but the bleeding edge in apps/ extras, thoroughly tested of of course.
