i dont know how to install linux applications.never comfortable
with rpm and tarballs.which linux should i choose that includes all window managers, all desktop envionment from kde 4.1 to gnome,all x servers ,all themes from beryl to…..,all partion managers, all boot managers. i mean all the free applications(popular) from the linux world.

I want to make my own distribution, targeted at linux newbies making the transition to linux. I would prefer it to be based on debian or ubuntu due to the large amount of software for both, yet something my own. Like a custom boot screen, one centralized task bar, and if it is in any way possible, the last copy of beryl. I would need the iso file.
