The Fedora Live CD is limited in size so does not include much of the
software that is default in the DVD installation.

The download page provides ways to get the CD and DVD images.  When we
produce screenshot tours of the desktop, we usually use the software
installed by default from the DVD.

I don't see how those two could be related.  Mono is free and open
source software and there are a number of popular applications written
in Mono, so it is natural that some of them are going to end up in the
default DVD where there is room for everything *and* the kitchen sink.
