KDE fans will hate me but I consider XFree 4 far more important.
Since the day I tried Flight Gear and got an apalling 0.25 frames per
second on a K6/300 I am waiting for it.  We will not get decent games
until we have OpenGL support in hardware and without decent games
Linux will just be a toy for many people who will reboot to DOS for
real "work".

About releasing: because we are stll not on CD we can afford the
luxury of on the fly releases.  Once we fix the install for multiCD
then we can afford to make a new release if something big is released
and it does not break too many things.  Ie we could release with XFree
4 and consider an intermediate release once we get KDE 2.

I was speaking of electronic resources.
