I think if we wait until October we'll have an usable user-interface and then
more people will just play around with it and actually use it
Why would I write a plugin for an application that isn't usable? Give them a
nice main-program to play around with and then the plugins will shoot out of
the ground like mushrooms after a rainy day.
Besides, if someone is interested in Gideon he can grab a CVS version (most
developers should be able to do that) and if someone is just interested in
Gideon's look we have to present a neat app so that he gets excited.
We proclaimed often enough that Gideon nicely supports cool plugins, let's
deliver a Gideon for which it is worth writing plugins for!!
