I really think Steven went about marketing this in the wrong way. It really should have been dubbed as a terminal alternative. By calling it a replacement he's just inviting a mass of critique which focuses on what it lacks rather than what it offers over an xterm.

I really doubt that would have changed people's reaction. Besides, to be taken seriously, I have to believe that TermKit can eventually be a fully functional replacement.

As for being hard to try and not at a useful stage yet... hey, that's not my problem. I wasn't the one who upvoted it all over the internets :).
