Internet comments are mean, but if somebody wants to try something and
it doesn't work or is too cumbersome (for his standards), then they
never get to experience the good part and just rant about what they
went through.

Thing is, we're not the test group to measure whether it's cumbersome
or not, unless it is somebody who does UX a lot, and even so, it is
better to check with "foreigners".

"Make easy things easy, and hard things possible."

Considering the huge version change log I believe we started from the
last part :)

In any case, I think Pharo 7 is a huge milestone so let's celebrate
and thank to all who contributed.
We can improve the above described issues in the next major release.
