Not exactly. What my words implied is that the average user (80%) will

Indeed, probably only 10% are interested by the official squeak release
and contributing to it. This is why it is important to help the
community to grow, and a more user friendly image can be helpful for
that. It does not mean the official Squeak release is not friendly, but
there are place for improvement and hopefully it is done in squeak-dev,
and obviously we should take advantage of that.
It is only the rule of statistic and it has nothing to do with the
importance or value, for sure the official squeak release image in its
own is more important than any other derivative as squeak-dev, but the
average user will prefer that last one.
