Hmmm... where does this info come from ? Everytime I read about this
idea, the developers said that it was possible, technically, but highly
unlikely, as it would mean removing a lot of end user program. So,
possible, but not feasible/reasonable in practice. Well unless Ubuntu
put it on a DVD, but if they do, I hope they will still produce the twin
Install/Live CD, as a DVD takes so long to download, and I don't think
many people have a DVD writer. Then again, those who are rich enough to
afford enough bandwidth to download a DVD, probably are also the ones
who can also afford a DVD writer and blank discs. So... let's make a DVD
for the rich, and two small CD's for the poor ;-)

I don't think ? If they can't put it on the live CD, adding all the
stuff from the install CD is only going to leave even less space for
rescue tools ! :-/

Huuu.... does it really ? I don't know... how does it work ? I am new to
Linux, and I kept hearing that you must use a "Live CD" to repair the
machine, so I didn't even think of it, and used the Live CD not the
Install CD. Plus, it somehow sounded just plain more logical to me.. ?
