An idea would be to create a one-cd distribution of the most used
packages. The popularity contest (apt-get install popularity-contest)
scores how often programs are used and installed, and would be
a good ground for such a CD.


For example, we see that 15 people use XBill regularly, whereas
121 people installed it but not used it recently :)

Ofcourse, the statistical population are those who have installed
the popularity-contest package, but it gives some indication of
package usages.
