That is absolutely correct.
But now there are two things that have to be done:
1) Useability: Apps must start, work, and not crash, and all must work
as much possible together.
2) The desktop must be configuerable, to meet as much as possible
anybodies need.

So if we work together, to find and kill the bugs, the sooner we have
what we want/need/desire, i guess, no?
