I like very much the professional approach and analysis of Graham. And
I agree pretty much.

However, a "family" distro means, for me, the married man / woman +
kids. And that's where I find Marc's approach correct.

If you wan that the whole family could enjoy the experience, you must
provide to the distro the "tools-for-common-tasks" like office suite,
Internet, IM, etc etc, educational software and security-for-kids
tools, and of course, solid game experience.

If you don't include games, probably you'll have dual-boot PC's
instead of Megaia-only PCs.

There will be cases where dual-boot will be inevitable (maybe because
dad needs a particular tool and Wine is not an option), but we're
talking about the majority.
