Why a distro?

Why is a distribution needed at all? Reactos provides the basic os, at least one web browser (come on people don't you want Joe AverageUser to try this? it can always be uninstalled), and the package manager. Software can then be downloaded from the package manager (Reactos bandwidth), or the softwa...
