Ubuntu without pre-installed software?

No need to get worried. I too was just voicing my opinion, I actually 
think BOTH methods might be acceptable. For the "experienced" Linux 
users, I mean really....who WANTS to spend half the afternoon removing 
software they'll never use or don't need? And then again, for the 
"noobies" of which I am one, I NEED to have some of that stuff 
pre-installed for me, because I'm not "learned" enough to know how to 
install everything with the configurations I need or have become 
accustomed to. But I think there SHOULD be a middle ground, and the fact 
that they're doing away with an Alternative .iso file might mean that 
both you and I have to become more affluent in using Ubuntu on a daily 
basis! As for myself I have quite a few exciting things I'm hoping 
for....(maybe a Gnome Desktop Environment?..LoL!) and some new 
backgrounds....features....apps...etc. I look at my usage of 12.04 as 
the "escape" from the Locked Into What THEY Want You To Use
