You have a valid point.
I agree that the registry is not that necessary now that a lot of apps are on Flathub (for an example) but as much as I understood it’s against Fedora’s principles to include anything from “outer sources”…they must make every package themselves to include them to the installation image. Example of this is Firefox browser which has all the necessary codecs included in the Flathub version, not so much in the one from Fedora’s registry…
The thing I personally don’t like is the fact that the installation image size will get larger the more apps they include; they want to make SB very similar to Workstation regarding preinstalled apps.
Anaconda need a lot of work as it is…especially if they add an app selector (which apps to include - this would be very very usefull) or a " minimal" install. It’s really tedious and contraproductive to delete unecessary apps like Font Viewer, Clocks and similar (at least in my case).
Hopefully, the devs can read this and consider it.
