In general, avoid big new things that will be half-baked if we start 
working on them in P, and focus on finishing off things that are 
currently half-baked in O.

Other than that, I think it'd be great if we could focus a bit on power 
consumption (i e, make your laptop battery last longer, for different 
workloads). Battery life has been a real seller lately for 
Dell/HP/Lenovo/etc, and with all benefit that open source has of being 
able to analyse the entire stack of things, I'm pretty sure we could 
beat Windows quite well - but I'm not sure we currently do (because we 
don't even measure it, or do we?).
