whats the difference between Source Mage and Sorcerer

whats the difference between Source Mage and Sorcerer

simple question how do they compare to me from what I can see on distrowatch their compare the same in stuff they offer under testing but they seem to not list the stuff on the cdroms do all the files like kde and gnome etc show under the iso list have those files on the cds or are they like gentoo and you have to download the installer cd and then download all the source files just to get the system up and running , I would not mind that if the files also are compressed in .tgz2 formats too for the apps , I just don't like to download big source files like gentoo has in them it takes forever that way to get a based system with kde and gnome etc running under them with a modem connection

Source Mage and Sorcerer are both source based, and unfortunately just like Gentoo, you'll need to download sources for just about everything you'd like to install. The iso itself only contains the most basic tools needed to boot and then build the system.
