Re: [opensuse-factory] About the Live CDs (PLEASE READ)

So I wonder: should we screw the medium CD and go officially for
1GB sticks as our medium? (or require DVD medium for non-usb).

IMHO there is no need for a Live CD to be available for everybody, the only
thing that needs consideration is whether an "install CD" is still needed.

There would still be the netinstall variant, would it not? So people can still
download that and burn it to a CD to start from there.

One might think of improving the netinstall to have a "normal" installation
GUI by default – but that's another topic.

The only people that cannot install openSUSE would be those without internet
connection who do neither have a DVD drive or USB port to boot from.

Although, would it not be possible to download the 1GB image, put it on a
stick, copy it to the hard disk and boot from it?

Anyway, I vote for increasing the size of the live medium to 1GB.
