A point that made Ubuntu more successful than Debian was that Ubuntu narrowed its scope, officially focusing on a main core. If Ubuntu tries to be infinately flexible that may undermine a big part of the current formula that has brought it soo much good fortune.

So i would be wary of something that suggested allot of customisation, but perhaps a couple of checkboxes asking how you would use your PC, i.e. server, desktop, multimedia, composite etcetera could be good. Maybe even some preconfigured themes, say a half dozen, of which you can preview online and choose one to be your default post-installation.

Any word on when nLite will be supporting Vista, BTW?

Eventually I may have to deal with the bugger, but not without thoroughly gutting it.
