destructive marketing?

One thing I kept reading in recent time on is how much
of a disconnect people felt between the marketing message for F9 and the
reality.  "If they had just said it's a beta and beta KDE, suck it
up, it would have been easier.  But they invited all these new users
with slick shiny promises and let them down."

I'm going to try to address this head-on in the release documentation,
with sections that highlight potential and known problems.  I'm not sure
what to do about the marketing message except to note that we don't want
to undermine our success through over-hype.
