I totally agree to that and I hope Mageia will make this happen.

But I also agree that at this time Mageia has to saddle as a fork,
structures have to be build, etc.

Plus, we wouldn't use Mandriva if we don't like the way it works. So no need
to change to deb or make Gnome the primer Desktop Env. or stuff like that

My dream would be a very User and Admin friendly Disto

One Installer CD for Desktop Dualarch - metapacks for the desktop env
One Installer CD for a Serverversion inkl. LXDE + MMC-base and metapaks for
some spezial apps inkl. the MMC modules (and pulse)
One Installer CD for a Virtualserver using f.e. OpenVZ and a MMC based webui
and some community templates

In my opinion with this simple trippelisation you can arrange all kind of
home, business, school, multimedia, netbook ... structures you ever imagine
all with one Distro.

just my 5eurocent,

greetings from belgium, Sascha
