An idea that occurs to me is a liveCD with either
graphical desktop, with the following Authoring and
Publishing packages:
tetex-3.0-?? or TeXLive
kile if using KDE desktop
TeXMaker if GNOME based liveCD
And of course with printing support-

This would be a Math specialized CD of course.  It is
only an idea, I previously created a CD like this with
Kadishi, but since Extras could not be activated to
include packages from it, only TeTEX and gnuplot were
on the CD with both a version with KDE and GNOME
desktops for my friends.  

A Fedora based Math LiveCD not to compete with but to
at least emulate the TeaM-TL (TeX Live + Linux Live)


Sorry if this is too much to ask for.  But I believe
that this would make many Fedora Users happy to be
able to take their Fedora Desktop anywhere and
showcase their desktop and their mathematical
presentations/work.  If you shoot it down, I
understand the work involved and hope that instead of
a LiveCD a LiveDVD with everything but the kitchen
sink is created and available for download to satisfy
more people's wishes and requests.
