Newbie Idea

The mail from "Newbie needs help" gave me an idea. 
Why not have a version of Independence without all the 
programming applications? MS Windows does
not ship w/Visual C or Visual Basic. It would make the
download smaller and maybe more attractive to a number
of people who would otherwise not bother to try.
Lets face it, most of the new users moving to Linux are
coming from Windows and most are not hackers or
programmers. Most are not going to try to rebuild their
kernel either. Their looking for something different to use
other than MS products to scratch an itch. If they wanted
to try programming later, make an upgrade available.

Just food for thought, Any other thoughts?
