I think maybe this is where the core misunderstanding is, because I
don't see anything in the PRD that would exclude this usage.
We're only going to provide a satisfactory experience for developers if
we also provide a satisfactory experience for casual home users. I guess
you can infer that from the target audience saying that it should be
usable as the developer's only computer, but I worry that as currently
phrased the expectation will be that the user is sufficiently
technically aware that we can leave rough edges that would dissuade a
non-technical user. The developers I work with don't fit into that
category - they *can* fix things that break. They'll just choose not to
and go back to an OS that lets them forget about implementation details
when they're trying to relax.
