Hello followers :-)

I apparently had a bug report[1] assigned to me which talks about
enhancements for our LiveCD.
Now, this will be to late for 11.1, but lets discuss it for 11.2.


This is what's been suggested (my comments after each point);

1.- Remove Cheese and Add Xsane
is more necessary the software to use the scanner it is indispensable for all
office or home people want to use the scan immediately

captain_magnus> I honestly think more people wants to have some fun with
their web cameras than scanning documents, so I think we should keep Cheese

+1. More people are looking to use webcams than scanners. There's
fewer uses of scanners than in the past. Although this isn't to say
it's obsolete, but its becoming a specific need. I've gotten rid of
most of my scanners (and I used to buy a new one every few months!)

There's also an a11y angle to using Cheese. Deaf users are heavily
dependent on the use of webcams in various forms and are serious
vloggers. Cheese makes openSUSE appealing in that way.


2.-Include tsclient or gnome-rdp
this is very important for make a remote from other machine with VNC or RDP
very very important have this software

captain_magnus> This is possible already on the LiveCD thanks to NOMAD?


3.-Gimp
This software is indispensable have this in the live cd and the installation
for the users plz add this one to live cd

´╗┐captain_magnus> Personally, I can't even create a filled rectangle in GIMP
and so, I'd suggest to see if we can fit sk1 on the LiveCD instead.

Go to a training class. :-)


4.-Yast2
Add one function for save all files RPM are download from the repositories to
make a cd with all updates and other software are installed to get all RPM and
install then in other computers don't have internet or don't have a good
connection this is very very very very important

captain_magnus> This is (sort of) already on the LiveCD for 11.1, thanks to
the new "service pack" creator.


5.-More performance for can run in computer with low procesor and low memory
´╗┐
captain_magnus> Would be nice :-)


Cheers,
Magnus
