For a change, why can't people comment on the product itself?

Okay, I'll give it a shot!

Hmmm...

That's a really nice screen shot? Oh and look! They've managed a Gecko port to their C++ API! Isn't that just lovely for them, just think if they keep it up they'll manage to get an A++ in there some where. Jolly good of them to bring Wikipedia to the desktop! I say just think of the possibilities--an encyclopedia ANYONE can edit! What will they think of next? What WILL they think of next! I can hardly wait for next month's regularly scheduled beta release so we'll all have another screen shot to gawk at!

....

Y'know maybe you're on to something after all...
