> Greetings,

Hi Scott,

> Pardon me for joining this conversation late... and I've not been very active nor involved in media distribution... BUT I do make my own Fedora Remix and it contains basically all of the desktop environments that are included in the stock Fedora repos... along with quite a few apps and third-party media related packages.  Anyhoo... I just wanted to mention that my remix easily fits on a single DVD.  In fact, it'll fit on a 2GB USB thumbdrive as livemedia.

What is the name of the Remix, where can we find it?

> So to answer your question, not only can it fit all of the desktop environments and a healthy set of apps on a single DVD, it ends up being about half the size of the current install DVD.
> However my remix does not contain much in the way development tools... but that isn't important for most users to start with.  If they decide to do an install from the live media, they can always install the development tools after the fact.  I've been meaning to expand the package set to include devel tools and have a 4GB DVD but so far as live images go, I think they are limited by the filesize max of the FAT filesystem (2GB)... if you want to make live media out of them... but I'm not positive.
> Did that answer your question?

Cool work man! :D

Just some questions:

- Does your remix have a 32bit/64bit selection choice int the boot loader?
- Once booting or before, can you choose which live Desktop you want to use?
- Once the desktop is loaded, can you do a full offline installation (
...  with anaconda )?
