Re: [opensuse-factory] About the Live CDs

the bigger problem is they're too tiny to legibly label what
they contain. I don't foresee a solution for that media management
problem ever happening.

How about: combine everything

Do you have a problem the concept of media management? Maybe you live in an environment where there are under a dozen or so. Here it's more like a public library, thousands of user-written OM, all of which need to be identifiable externally. It's bad enough with OM that there is little or no spine space for labeling, but with sticks there's virtually no space of any kind for legible external labeling, no way to organize and locate whichever media is required of the moment.

on a single USB stick (or one per
location/office), and have a boot-menu system to help you pick what you
need.

Like http://ultimatebootcd.com/ or http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd or similar? That doesn't sound workable for KISS or rescue environments. Users couldn't just add one iso from foo, another from bar, a third from baz, all on one stick, could they? Some higher power would have to create these complexities, not to mention decide what they include and exclude. They'd surely be much bigger than 700 or 1000MB downloads. And still there's the external labeling problem, only bigger, with yet more that can't fit.
