It seems that it is no longer just us technical users and you bad journalists screwing with developers. Oh, no! It also the "collectors" now. Or maybe it's you and us that are the "collectors"?
Still a bit confused on that one... :-)

If I would be a lead programmer in a project having many users I may
ask the users in first place before starting from scratch - and after
finishing something like first beta really _ask_ for missing features
(the most badly needed ones) and make sure that these are in before
the RC or even releasing version x.0. Just a dream ...
Maybe this is just the reaction of the nice administrators.
By the way, are there any user polls by GNOME/Unity/KDE/XFCE/LXDE ...
(i.e. the DE project asking its user base)?
As these projects are not as technical as the kernel, this may be
a good idea - wouldn't it - especially if someone aims at large
user numbers ... and not dreaming of a desert island.
