No issues with Sugar. The discussion here is about the "conventional
desktop". We currently ship Gnome, which is going very high-end in its
hw requirements.

The deep question at play is: can we wrangle Gnome 3 into being usable
across our hw platforms? If not, will we switch desktop platform? If
we switch desktop platform, do we do that for all platforms, or only
the oldest ones?

Are you personally prepared for the impending flamewar over the cute
bikeshed about the choice of desktop platform? Stock up on popcorn!
