I agree that the jimmac theme is the way to go - but thats an oppinion - 
and others may (and will) disagree.

As for all the other stuff to remove from the distro - that's a 
different thread and also a work in progress. I can't remember what was 
decided with regards to languages. I don't think you should get all 
languages installed unless you do an everything install or something, 
but i may be wrong.
