Post your idea for a Linux distro

Here is mine

Name: Ubuntu Professional Edition

Description: UPE is a fork of Ubuntu, everything is pretty much the same as Ubuntu except that UPE will have higher quality apps and stuff, and adding things that Ubuntu does not have (but would be good to have in it) like Beryl.
The goal of UPE is to introduce people to Linux in a pre-packaged method that will have everything a person needs to fulfill their needs without pulling their hair out and going back to Winblows. UPE will even be aimed at corporations looking for something other than Winblows, or that just can't stand risking a virus.

Espreon, exactly what you said, except I would have Fedora 7, and Cedega instead of Wine.

Yeah

But isn;t Cedega subscription only? And besides a Linux distro is pretty much only to posess OS code, or the OS community will shun the distro....

EDIT [1:40 AM]:
And also I said that UPE (Ubuntu Pro) would be aimed at corporations, that means Ubuntu's excellent hardware support helps it out. So why would you wanna aim your distro at the corps if it did not have as good hardware support as mine did?
Correct me if I am qrong, but doesn't Ubuntu have superior hardware support?
