If I remember well, you can't hard link a a program under GPL license with modules that are incompatible license, but BSD do.

Personnaly I don't think this will be the "Linux Desktop Year" as stated in other comments. Not this year. But expect the next year to be stronger as great improvement and step are going to be made (KDE4 & Gnome 3). Also, Linux on the desktop wont happen until a major vendor who understand the Linux world grab a giant part of the market and beging to sell or simply give away it's Linux distribution to major company.

I expect Mark Shuffle of Ubuntu to be trying to do this. The formula of having a clean and working distro fitting on a single CD is a winner combination. I also like Ubuntu for not using custom configuration panel like SuSe or RHEL do.
