17 You will have whatever system the profile maintainer thinks the
18 average user should have, bloated to whatever degree said maintainer
19 thinks is a good idea.

29 kde-meta gives you all the stuff that's useful on the average system,
30 plus all of accessibility, kdebindings, kdeedu, games, the sdk, toys
