* .0 releases are usually buggy, no surprise there
* .0 releases are expected to not have huge regressions, and at least migrations paths
* we are no longer 'from geeks to geeks'; we have reached out for non-technical users
* it is good we have options; KDE may end up becoming the 'for geeks' desktop (for its
customizability), while GNOME ends up becoming the 'for regular users' one (for its simplicity)
* distributions should worry a bit more about stability and the principle of least surprise; they may
find that tagging 1 stable release per year, using one of the 2 yearly releases as 'developers release'
may be a good idea
