Yep, I agree - BUT, we're not even to a point where installations are

Right now "Distro" is being used to describe LiveCDs and Demo/Promo
CDs and VMWare images... There has been very little distinction
provided for these.

First boot is every time on a LiveCD...

Obviously, but there are currently distributions of Linux LiveCDs that on boot prompt for language, root password, or other options. I'd rather be delayed for 10-30 seconds on boot to choose my language and some trivial and optional settings than to have to guess what I'm clicking because I don't understand the language. I recently had a lot of "fun" doing that with a distro of Linux that was defaulted to German though the web site made no mention of that.

Any ways, like I said, just my two unimportant cents. :)
