As Curaga said, some people don't have a net connection. Others might be on a very limited dialup. These people might opt for mail-order DSL, or have gotten it from a friend.
|But they could download the apps they want at the same time they are downloading DSL|
It has been suggested before to do something similar to this, specifically to separate the non-essential applications into one or more extensions while still providing those extensions as part of the ISO and installed by default. A user who wanted to remove them could easily do so with a MyDSL CD remaster (mkmydsl) without the need to modify KNOPPIX. I kinda like this idea myself.
|A 'default' package of MyDSL apps (containing all of the current ones) could also be available to download for those who don't know what to choose.|
However, I'm guessing there are a few possible reasons why this will probably not happen:
1. Robert has his hands full with existing plans for both DSL and DSL-N.
2. It is not a high priority, since DSL is already a tiny distro.
3. It is not a desirable option, since DSL is already a tiny distro.
