X11, Window Managers Apparently, my article a few days ago caused a bigger stir than I had anticipated, not at all unrelated to the fact that my wordings may not have been optimal. So, let me clarify things a bit.

Your needs don't suit me, nor most users. Bluetooth is much more common than you think it is. Now-a-days its on many, many cell phones and PDA/PDA-like devices. It is extremely useful and to not have an application for that built in would be a "con". All modern operating systems need bluetooth easily acceessible.

Video editting is used quite a bit by mom and pop. They go to a wedding, or film their kids first birthday. They are most likely going to wnat to do something with it.

Unfortunetaely, just taking your examples, you are not most users in my opinion. Just by your seemingly minimalist wants, makes me think you are a "power user".

As long as there are not 10 different applications for one task, I don't see how GNOME would be getting bloated by including applications that have tons of possibility to be useful.

EDIT: Agree with you 100% Eugenia. Unification/Integration is key, which is why I moved to OS X and a Powerbook.
