Thought it might be worth mentioning it.

Limiting openSUSE to GNOME or KDE is just wrong. Interesting idea

Hmm, would it be possible to have a base openSUSE system, and have
GNOME/KDE as addons? It wouldn't be *that* much of a difference compared
to the LiveCD's?

Well, technically spoken, yes. I don't think many users would like this
approach, installing from a single DVD is just too comfortable.

On the other hand, we might consider providing up-to-date desktop
environments as add-on products during the life cycle of the distro
(basically make an add-on from factory repo after new KDE/GNOME/whatever
gets released and stabilized).


That's good idea in many ways:
- base distro would have to sync with smaller number of upstream projects
- the addon desktop CDs can be tested out of sync with main release
- current problems with last minute inclusion or time spent on backports are
out for good
- users that depend on physical media will get opportunity to have the newest
desktop without much work to download oBS repository

Is there any adverse effects?
