Maybe saying Mdk, RH, Suse type users isn't the best description.  There 
is a vast range of skill levels amoung there users.  Thinking back I 
used mandrake without haveing a clue of how to do anything in linux.  Is 
this more the direction we are heading in.  Have an easy but 
customizable setup for computers to do mainly the basics (web, mail, 
documents, multimedia, games?) in the fast gentoo way.
