Dear Joey,

it would be very exciting to have the possibility to select a blend at the
installation. To circumvent the limitation of space, how about having a single
line to select ‘Chose a Debian Pure Blend‘, that would lead to a page that
provides the full list of blends ?

On the other hand, I would warmly welcome an i18n task that reproduces the user
experience on Macintoshes, where a standard system contains everything to read
and write a large number of languages. Currently with Debian, on fresh
installs, I have to iterate over the missing fonts for Japanese and other Asian
languanges, and look back on my old notes to figure out what packages will
provide me an input system for chinese characters, because I select French or
English at install time. 

Have a nice day,
