Maybe there should be more than one distribution method to suit
CD - minimum subset
DVD - full working with all the most popular apps pre-installed
Solid state - full installation with everything anyone is likely to need
Charge for the Solid State device with the aim to generate revenue to
cover the general cost of having 3 rather than one option.
Bigger market happier customers and pays for itself.
