Ok, I have just moved gnumeric to the recommends section as well.

That is fixed with the latest (a day or two after post Beta) uploads.

They're mostly language packs and need to be on the CD so that users can pick
from many languages. The others are packages that are needed on a liveCD but
not on an installed system (ubiquity, discover, debian-installer etc)

> * Why is Scim / Anthy installed?
To better support some of the Asian input methods, although we had not feedback so
far that it is working or not. I assume it does since it's there since dapper :)

Use a daily, it's always more up-to-date and assures you are testing an image closer to
the final release and can report more relevant bugs.

Is that particular to xubuntu? Can you try the restricted drivers manager from the system menu?

Again, grub/kernel/general Ubuntu error, please file a bug in LP. Althought it may have been
corrected in a later CD build.

thanks for testing.
