It would be nice if these two had "server" as a possible installation
target (or "server-minimal" as the case may be), which installed the
server kernel instead.  As well as an option on the Server install CD
for a minimal installation (not default, but a target specifiable at
boot time).


Beyond that, I like the way this conversation has turned...a
productive discussion about the difference between an "Ubuntu Server
Product", which is true to the spirit of "Linux for Human Beings (who
happen to also be sysadmins)", as well as an "Ubuntu Server Minimal"
installation, without the bells and whistles for the uber Ubuntu
sysadmins (aka old school, die hard).
