I think i get what you mean, with the whole desktop = different distro, and i agree, especially how ubuntu, kubuntu xbuntu ect each get separate recognitions in distrowatch. I do think it can be good though, in the way that it shrinks the size of the iso, but i think that they should just do what fedora and some others do where you specifically select the desktop you want your iso to contain. (this is obviously for the people who don't want to download a iso with heaps of desktops available.)
on another note; did you just double post Mr moderator :-P
