Hello,

we're discussing a release criterion which is tightly related to GNOME and KDE environments. Could your teams please provide some feedback on the proposed criterion update, see below? Is user switching something you believe should be working (and in which milestone?), or should we rather de-emphasize/remove that function?

Please respond to the test@ list, if possible, to avoid fragmenting the discussion.

Thanks!
