previously called Date and Time. see the problem with that?
<elad661> yes, I do
<elad661> but I think we could either remove it (since gnome's control

<elad661> we probably need it for firstboot, so removing the desktop

In my opinion, the search-based shell overview makes this kind of
redundancy less problematic than it was in a traditional menu system.
But yes, it is a bit of a wart that anaconda and its dependencies end up
on the installed system when installing from a live-cd.
2) why is "remote desktop viewer" installed by default? I
gnome boxes provides this functionality now.
Does it actually provide this functionality now ? Have you tried ? I
know that the goal is to eventually support it, but I am not positive
that the feature will be in 3.4 / F17.
