I am suggesting that we can copy and trim the existing games DVD
kickstart file and reuse that if that is less work.
Hmm, but thats derived from the standard desktop install isn't it? Then we will
have very little room for games.
I'm thinking more along the lines of a very minimal desktop with a stripped
xfce (for example no filemanager, unless thats very small and doesn't bring in
to much deps).
I'm also thinking things like: no browser, maybe a text based one which can be
launched in a terminal from a fake htmlview like command for those apps that
expect htmlview to be there.
Maybe use xfce? Then we will be the xfce

It is still very early but I am working on a Xfce spin too.
Couldn't we use that as a start then, without for example the broswer, mail
client, office apps, etc.
AFAIK the unique asset of the games dvd is the games list other then that its
almost an exact copy of the official desktop livecd.
