Spins can be live or regular images though people who have proposed
spins have chosen to do live images (some are cd's. others are dvd's) ones.

Note that "default" option in http://get.fedoraproject.org is the
desktop live cd and not the Fedora DVD image. In fact, Fedora releases
can be thought of a sample set of spins and the tools are available in
the repository to do your own Fedora, just the way you like it. I kind
of have done that myself.
