I'm not convinced that they are well-tested. They included News Reader,
which hasn't worked for the last several releases. That doesn't suggest to
me that their activities went through any kind of extensive testing before
deployment. They have since been tested in the field by children. I
*haven't* seen much feedback from kids yet. At least not from South
American and not any broad spectrum.
