fedoraLife Concept (condensed version) online now

tFrom what I get Markus is suggesting a "bundled" Fedora which would have
all common and cool apps, so users don't have to search/install them.

I think a much reasonable approach would be to give users profiles, but much
more focused than the package selector we have upon installation. I see this
idea in Ubuntu with its flavors (Studio, Home Server, etc) and Debian with
that primitive selector (Server, Notebook, etc).

There could be profiles such as Media Workstation, Developer Workstation,
Server, Home User, etc. Those would just select appropriate packages in the
already existent package selector in Anaconda.
