Unfortunately in the real world many people know about "Debian" but while
sitting on the LinuxTag booth currently I can assure you that most people
do not know either the "brandnew" Debian-Jr nor the "last week created"
Debian-Med and a project like Debian-NP does not exist (according to the
word of random visitors).
I'm talking about people who heard about Debian and found a random DVD
and install this on their hard disk. They will definitely start browsing
the huge package list instead of simply customizing their box for the
intended purpose. That's why we need an easily visible method to show
people what we have done for them besides extra customized discs in the
"generic" Debian install process.
