Does the DVD install extra stuff than the CD if you install a desktop?
I think we should be careful of diluting the experience is by providing
alternatives to packages on the CD (e.g. providing Thunderbird if
evolution is still the default.)
I also think that it would be good to have a metapackage to install the
extra packages if you install from the CD first, like the kubuntu-full
package that Scott mentions.
Looking at what I have installed that isn't default, I would suggest
The other things probably aren't appropriate (wireshark?)
