Hi folks

Forgive me if this is the wrong list, or if this topic has been covered...

First off, I've been using Ubuntu for a little over a month.  Great 
distro, until now I've used nothing but Debian at home and CentOS at 
work.  The only problem I see so far is that the desktop install doesn't 
give any options.  It would be great to have a developer version, which 
installs gcc, g++, autoconf, gnu make, etc.  Maybe this doesn't appeal 
to the target user base, though it would make my life as an admin much 

For now I've had to come up with a shell script to apt-get many 
additional packages before my users have a useful system in place.
