Think this is a fair summary of the current state of things. We really
need to fix InstallShield problems before we go to 0.9, so that people
can just install the apps that work. Having to install apps on a Windows
partition first is a big turn off (a fundamental one for me for example,
as I simply don't have a Windows partition :)).

Once that gets fixed, we can hopefully enlarge the Gold list some
more, and then trim it to apps that are more interesting to Linux
users. But to trim the list, we have to grow it first :)
