I also think it's utterly wrong - at least that's not what R1 is about; 
it might be our long term mission, but certainly not "what is Haiku" or 
"current situation".
At least I still put my files into folders and clutter my desktop with 
icons :-)
In the sense written there, Haiku is no better than Windows or Mac OS 

But honestly, a "what is Haiku" definitely must include our heritage - 
where are we coming from (BeOS R5), and not only where we may intent to 
go to some years in the future.

BTW do the screenshots have to be crappy looking JPEGs? Their quality 
really is pretty bad; for UIs PNGs or a better JPEG converter are more 
appropriate, I'd think.
