I have no doubts I can re-install emacs, Sylpheed Claws, RTF reader, DJVU reader, graphic novel reader, on screen clock, blue tooth stack, CD-ROM/DVD support, Windows networking etc... plus the public stuff.
The major timing issue is when to cut off support for the 2.7 apps...
I think: NOW. Update the apps if they do not work under 2.8 and upgrade, because the vast majority of users will have 2.8.
I would like to have a RTF reader, BTW, although until now I transformed it into PDF.
