I agree... I prefer to have a lean base install, and then to have many
choices available in the repositories! I don't mind having to download
extra apps that maybe only I am interested in.

Tossing in my 0.02 worth, I like the 1 CD install as well. However, to prove 
the point above that you can't please everybody, I find it a tad bit 
annoying that to use Samba (as an example) on my off-web machines, I had to 
head out on the Web to get smbclient. Kinda like getting a new car and then 
having to go out again to get the steering wheel installed.
