Just that CD1 is no longer sufficient to provide a full desktop environment installation and instead promote an alternative installation image for desktop installations. > I don't know about serious surveys, but flash drives are ubiquitous > and have large storage.

Even if a default DVD-RW would provide more space, having only 1 GB instead of 4.4 GB to download makes a difference. 2.0 GB would even probably be enough to fit GNOME and KDE (and maybe other alternatives) on that image.
