I think we should push the multi-arch media. Particularly, the
x86/amd64/powerpc one can boot something like 99% of all the hardware
debian will ever run on, without the user having to care about what arch
his PC or Mac is, since the media detects the most appropriate one.
Vendors should be encouraged to provide them, users should be directed
to them on www.debian.org/CD/, etc.
