Pirut's GUI is just in a poor pre-alpha state, it hardly follows the
Gnome HIG, it can't do full screen, strange large font, the GUI
sometimes locks up when doing "networking" work, and the icons are just
terrible. If it is going to be shipped in FC5 like this it will just be
a plain embarrassment for Fedora. 

Of course that does not mean pirut doesn't have potential and certainly
doesn't mean the pirut developers are doing a poor job, it is simply
means pirut is not ready yet.

I always wondered when happened to red carpet, that was a great RPM
update manager, with a good GUI. Its a shame that isn't part of Fedora
Core (technicalities apart, because it would probably be a bitch to make
it use yum).
