Too many options! "Don't make me think", for those that are fans of the
book.

This is like installing Suse. Suse has (had?) a dozen different text
editors on the menu. Users do not want to have to choose which version
they want, they want one default that works.

Anyone that wants any different knows enough to do it themselves.
Don't want firefox? yum install epiphany.

At this rate, we are hurtling rapidly towards this mess:

* Fedora 7 Starter
* Fedora 7 Home Basic
* Fedora 7 Home Premium
* Fedora 7 Business
* Fedora 7 Enterprise
* Fedora 7 Ultimate

Not the ease of use Fedora deserves.
