Sorry for being unclear. The userbase I mentioned is "targetted" userbase. Not
The usability theory discovered that creating software for a very small set of
people will create software that is usable by a huge set of people.
While creating software for just everyone will quickly make decisions on which
features to have and how to design UIs so convoluted that you end up with
software that only works for a few people (this tends to be what people
KDE as a whole has made several steps into defining our target audience. This
has little to do with who _can_ use it, but a lot more on who you are wise to
say 'no' to when someone asks a for a new feature.
My previous email points out that working along that route will make it much
