Maybe there should be more than one distribution method to suit
different markets.

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.
