The concept of a complete desktop environment changes, and I think it's good
to embrace the kinds of features that Apple and Microsoft are including in
their desktops. (I'm actually writing an article about this at the moment,
but anyway...)

So, I believe that GNOME should include a web browser, IM client and mail
reader (in amongst other things, but you've mentioned these specifically) in
the Desktop release. These are appropriate for many classes of users.

I'm just not convinced that a video/audio conferencing system is in this
category yet. :-)
