I sympathise, but any suggestion of change brings us back to the original
question - do we have the bandwidth to just serve people iso images?
If we do then, yes lets simplify the whole damn thing.
If we don't, then what room is there for making the user experience easier
whilst still avoiding most people just downloading a whole 650Mb? Jigdo
should make the PIK experience much simpler, which will definately help.
Shall we just try an appeal to people saying "_please_ don't download the
whole bloody iso unless you are too stupid to do it the other way" :-) , then
list the options and see how that goes?
