- How many users are really need a professional image editing tool
like GIMP?

I would be very much stuck without GIMP - I'm sure I use it every
week, maybe not every day.

Yes, but pre-installed? Every peace of software in the repos is needed
by anyone. I know, GIMP is pre-installed in openSUSE since decades...

I think the default pattern should come with as many default packages as
is reasonable. Office, samba, graphics, multimedia, scanner, games -
everything that one might use as a normal user. I guess we still have
the limitation of "how much to fit on a DVD".

Ok, then we simply have a different approach. I think too many pre-installed
programs confuse most users. Especially if they overlap in funcions like
diigkam and gwenview or plasma-pa and kmix.
