Everything means *_everything_* in the distribution release.
Customized configurations for workstation or server or desktop uses the
language selection you told it to, but then selecting _everything_ over-
rides that and makes it .. well everything....
If you want *almost* everything then use the custom install and select
all you want and leave out what you don't.
BTW, I believe that on the custom install you can select all of the
packages in the lists _without_ getting all the internationalization
languages and stuff.
