I guess that means I'll have to add my two cents, of course. <grin>
N> i *DO NOT* want a command-line driven one.
I do. It's a matter of preference. I've already said, as have many
others, that the UI should be modular, and the user should be allowed to
select which they want.

This project really isn't for the faint-of-heart. We're talking
rewriting the system mainboard firmware, here. With all due respect, if
you have trouble dealing with a CLI, then you're in the wrong place.

Um, serial console? A lot of people (myself included) have expressed
an intererest in this. :-)

Again with all due respect, we're implementing system firmware, not
writting a multimedia demo. Download "Crystal Dream II" or buy a Mac if
you want that sort of thing. <grin>
