Does it have a working text stack? One big problem that led to all of
the modern desktop bloat is that a large portion of legacy software
never got past the "character = glyph" myth and thus can't support
text written in the native languages of nearly half the world's
population. This allowed GNOME/FDO junk to take over the Linux
desktop, since it was not politically viable for major distributions
to say "F you" to entire linguistic groups.
