Do we really need this ?

This is just going to get so damn confusing for newbies to Linux.

The sheer amount of choice they are going to be faced with, will surely force most of them back to the familiar world of microsoft windows.

Do we really need yet another 'Linux for the desktop' distro ?
Does Linux really need to be broken down into these areas, when current Distros like Redhat and Mandrake already offer the option to easily install a Workstation/Server or Development system from the same installation CD's ?

This is redundant work - there's nothing new here at all.
