Does "feature bloat" apply to PGV? Could it?

    I found the following thought-provoking quote from a Firefox spokesman:

    "At Firefox we are disciplined about getting rid of features. It is hard to do that in an open-source development model. You need to take the open-source energy and overlay a product management discipline."

    He believes that other open-source projects would get more interest from non-technical users if they took a tougher approach to jettisoning unnecessary functionality.

    Hmm.  This reminds me of trouble my uncle, aunt, mom, dad, and sister have had knowing where to go, what to click, and how to use PGV.  It is dismaying to me, and maybe people are simply too impatient these days. 

    I personally love PGV.   I love how it looks. I love how it acts.  I love what it does.  I love the GNU GPL.
