And I dig that its targetted towards the artsy folks, but that it still has quality under the hood for the more hardcore user. The OS of the future needs to have power for the hardcore, as well as appeal for the less-than-hardcore. That's why NeXT was cool. That's why Gnome or KDE could make Linux Cooler.
