I thought of that after.

I agree. If it wouldn't confuse a new user too much, it would almost be
best to install with two accounts, one that starts a session bare of
almost everything for multi-media work and one for desktop use with bells
and eye candy. Trouble is, I'm lazy, I don't want to have to log out and
in and if I do it would be too tempting to leave both sessions running so
I can switch between them (which would be worse). A button (menu
selection) that turned a bunch of stuff off would be nice, but just using
a stark desktop to begin with would probably be better.
