Hi Christian,

thank you for writting up the product description.

Here are some things that came to my mind while reading it:

- What about watching films, listening to music? I think it is a basic 
requirement for students (at least for me).

Maybe we should add a that a student should be able to play videos and 
listen to music. It should be easy to install required codes 
(free/nonfree/patente) if they are available in the repositories (yes, I 
mean rpmfusion)

- You often refere to 'development environment with the latest web 
development tools'.

Is there a reaseon why 'web development tools' are listed seperatly? 
What about C/C++ development tools? Are they just 2nd grade tools?

Am I assuming correctly that 'development environment' includes IDEs, 
SCM-Systems, editors, ...?

- Maybe we should add a statement, that it should be easy to install/use 
server components on a workstation install. Many developers need server 
components to test their code
