The question remains: will that 60% be complete before the Vista milsetone,
which is set to 2007? Or will it be ready by 2015, which is when commercial
software is predicted to have died (Apache's head)?
When we propose features in WordPress, whatever makes the milsetone, makes
it. What doesn't make it results in cruft, bugs or no added value when the
milstone is reached. WordPress 2.0, which was released on Boxing Day was not
a success in many people's eyes. Many still refuse to upgrade from 1.5.x.
