Skip the word "Desktop" because it means too many different things.
Personal Laptop is defined as targeting roughly the same base set of
functionality that one might expect to find after purchasing a
mainstream consumer laptop from Dell, Apple, HP, etc.
It is very explicitly *NOT* defined as a "Linux distribution" or
"Fedora", because the first definition is and always has been
meaningless, and the second is just vacuous/self-referential.
Does this mean Personal Laptop is actually defined as chasing the tail
of competitors? Yes, it does. Is there something wrong with that?
Well, it's a lot better than just shipping a gigantic DVD or a
mishmash of whatever random package developers thought needs to be in
I would love to see something like this, even by Test2 if possible.
I'd even be willing to make our 'default' Live image we ship this,
instead of a Live version of the "Fedora" spin (whatever the heck
that's supposed to mean).
