It is a metric which gives you an idea unless you have something better.

But it is not clear at all how to interpret the data. The mere fact that
the terminal shows up high on the list does not tell you that  you must
make the terminal easier available.

No but it shows up some trends. It maybe showing that the desktop is not very usable currently without the terminal. If you want to collect better stats then we need to provide a way similar to smolt that gives us a optional way to keep track of which packages are being installed or used more without tying it with mugshot. Would you be interested in that?

Maybe people hate that they are
forced to use the terminal so much, and we should work on reducing the
need to do so...

Yes, that would be the better long term answer for the desktop users.

Who said anything about leaving out? I am talking about *icons on the GNOME panel*.

Ah, that wasn't clear to me at all. In that case, I tend to agree a bit more. But the answer may be more radical, like doing away with the top
panel, and replace it with bigboard.

Might be but we for Fedora 7 release would you consider making these application icons show up on the panel by default?

Firefox, Evolution, Tomboy, Openoffice.org writer(skip the rest of the openoffice.org apps) and Gaim.

For the GNOME live images replace Openoffice.org writer with Abiword.
