*boggle* what is the threshold to move from new user to power user - it
seems it is set a bit too low.

Just b/c someone likes a different application doesn't mean they're
skilled enough to find it buried 10 layers deep.

Ok - so I have to ask - how many user interactions have y'all had?
(y'all == the people deciding this policy?)

I interact with users everday - more importantly users of desktop linux
systems and they pick over the apps all day until they find one they
like, then they cling to it like lichen on a cave wall.

preferring an application makes someone a power user?

What is your scale for going from new user to power user? could you
explain it b/c I think we're working at VERY different definitions.
