So it's about you not wanting to do it rather than you not being able to do
it. We are looking for use cases where it is impossible to install without
Live CD.

Not sure about "the vast majority does not need a 700 MB CD"

Jos and others backed that claim up with some logic and points on technical
requirements. Where is yours?


Thought the discussion was about something else:
1) Like it or not, we are all confronted with some physical limitations,
Size of a floppy, cdrom, dvd, BR, mem-stick.

2) On the other hand, the amount of software keeps growing.

3) in _some_ parts of the world internetbandwith is surging, while its
cost is falling. But not everywhere.

So the discussion was: how is (open)SuSE going to deal with those
limitations, specially when they cause a problem for a release.
And i think it is healthy to re-think strategies once in a while.
Objectives might change, just like the intended audience.
