They have to start somewhere. Track records can change and it has to start somewhere. As I stated earlier I this is the start down the path and I hope they continue. If they are criticisized for honestly trying to do better then I don't see that as providing motivation to continue. Should we not allow a distro to change and evolve? I don't see some of that stuff you mention as being that important. They have done more than you give them credit for also and I believe they are honestly working on this as quickly as resources allow.

I do think they have a lot of areas to improve upon but I dont think it is fair to criticise them for starting to do just that.
