A work in progress I expect to be like...not supporting this new piece of
hardware or improving wireless card detection and such (though personally, I
think wifi support is WAY behind the curve in most distro's). Menu items that
are improperly treed, seg faults on stuff like a simple game or utility,
editors that take you through the motions but don't DO anything, and config
utils that fail to keep their settings are all signs of poor execution, not
"works in progress." Perhaps focus is in the wrong place and if so then so be
it. Someone should be walking through the distro before sending it out and
saying, "Okay, these 5 things don't even work. Take them out."
