Well, I think maybe it's more to cater to different artist types, e.g.,
I am primarily a 2D artist, I don't use 3D apps and I hardly ever use
video and audio editing tools. So if I could get a 2D art spin that fit
on a disc, took up less hdd space, and took less time to download it'd
be preferable to me... does that make sense? As a special bonus the
listing of spin names sort of serves as advertisement of what Fedora can

Maybe it's a silly idea but I don't know if I'd want *everything* on an
initial install... but I would like it to be easier to get more of the
artsy tools, right now it's scavenger-hunt in yum and that's not fun.
