Before somebody beats me to it: I'm aware that this build features a... 
er, hot-dog on the boot screen. This is /not/ a delayed Christmas 
present, though. Rather, it's a consequence of using strictly only 
packages that are currently in Fedora for this snapshot. This also 
affects the number of present activities.

I want everybody to be aware that this is *very* early in the 
development cycle. Please don't report bugs on each missing activity, 
but help us packaging it. Expect more to come on that front, soon.
