Actually not, but it is an interesting suggestion. On the other hand someone has to do it, and who's got the time :lol:

t IS quite long , I did a diff command on the 3 filesytem.manifest files from gnome kde and xfce and the list is over a 1,000 long , I dont know if people would find that useful or not. I think a feature list from each would be a bit more useful for people who dont want to download and do a multiple install , because you really need to do a hard disk install to fully appreciate the features of each. Or install one and run the others in vmware like I did :)
I think a editable list of features for all the distros on the mint wiki would be the best route. I see there is a KDE wiki started there , perhaps I should contribute there ?
