My point is:
1 - look at the other desktop environments (mainly windows) and check
what they have in clean installs
2 - what do common users install on top of it
3 - what extra support do we have to have to uncommon tasks.
What do you think we're doing here? Cooking? :P

i will check if it is complete. For example, correct me if i am wrong:
gnomevfs only supports ftp, ssh, dav, when they are on the system. So,
we must make shore they are. Also nfs, ntfs and other.
We've nfs client yes, ntfs for read only (by default, but AFAIK you
can force rw if you know what you are doing) since the writing code
isn't too stable yet.

It doesn't mean that we were all sleeping.
