I am very much being quoted out of context here.

I like the direction in which Deskbar is headed. It combines lots of
GNOME technology in such a way that it is indeed a powerful tool. It
also serves to replace an existing, dying piece of technology:

Deskbar offers features that give us a cut above other desktop
environments that don't have a feature like this. It is innovative, and
exciting. It happens to be a little bit slow, but I'm sure that will
improve as more people use it.

It just so happens that a lot of Apple's technological innovations as
well as Microsoft's (yes, they do have them) are also a little slow. We
are not instantly requiring everyone to have 22MB more RAM. We are
requiring interested people to have 22MB more RAM (or 11MB if they were
previously running mini-commander).

In short, I am excited about Deskbar. It has more of a home in the
desktop than mini-commander does. It serves my goal of making
gnome-applets more clean (by allowing mini-commander to be deprecated)
and incorporates technology exciting to the future of GNOME.
