|It remains to be seen how much practical use tiny DSL will have...|
Since it's a very modular environment, its uses are only limited to the user's goals, abilities, needs, etc. For some users, it'll be quite versatile and likely be adapted to desktop use as to anything else. For those who'd rather take potshots about the perception of time others spend on certain things than to help out or be constructive, there's hyperbole and derision to dish out. Pretty clear which group you're in.

Some of us have quite a bit less than others. Even those distros you say invest "hundreds of hours" in development started at the point core is now with lengthy rounds of testing to fine tune things so people like you can use them. If *you* think about it, without the efforts of any of those willing to invest whatever time they do have into making things work, you'd be stuck using Windows. (Or worse, a Mac.)
