Your idea is really sweet! We already have ubuntu server for servers and
desktop for desktop. In Slax there is Killbill for people who want to
try running windows apps, a server version for people who want that
functionality, a pop corn for smallness and a standard general purpose.
Installing something like development-desktop, or publishing-desktop as
well as ubuntu-desktop would be great. Instantly installing the best
selection of apps for each and also customizing the layout
