Would you consider including Steam by default in the new distro?

That is awesome.  I look forward to using the default applications you two pick for the distro.  Oh and I'm one of the people who wants you to keep Compiz. :)  Its a real pain to get working sometimes.

The new desktop has minimalistic window borders and Compiz is installed but NOT ENABLED by default. Due to regression in the latest version of virtualbox, compiz is not working properly. That said you can test the distro but you will need to use real hardware if you want to play in compiz-land.

That's probably for the better, when I've gone to use it, I had to switch to xfwm4, open ccsm and create a new profile for some reason.  I needed to do that in the liveusb and on the system once it was installed (AFAIK I'm the only to have had the issue, and I don't want to lose my work in Gentoo lol).
