Is that a full version of DB/2, or just the runtime needed for applications?
I hate to see them bloating the OS media. *ALL* of the UNIX system
installs should seperate the base OS install from everything else.
Having to select/deselect packages during initial install is a major PITA.
A simple base OS with an unpolluted and unbloated install, and
everything else seperate like it should be.
Like... NetBSD. Linux distributions, Sun, IBM, etc... they could all
learn a lot from those guys.
