Yeah but only because it is treated as a second class citizen (I hate
using this kind of arguments but I think you should get the point).

No its not, the above point is simply replacing KDE with something
else so that you can see how your own arguments sound to others.

We can't simply provide a list of 15000 packages and tell the user
"please choose" we have to select a default set of packages. (ie what
we are doing now).

This has nothing to do with KDE, I just think that asking the user
tons of question "what would you like to use" is simply wrong its OUR
(ie. the distro) job to do this choice.
