Do we know how many people actually use the software on the live media? 
Do they care if it's not 100% functional?

<personal experience> When I install Gentoo, I'll use which ever live 
CD/DVD/USB I can find, if not, I'll download the minimal install CD and 
the only pieces of software I'll use is dhcpcd and a web browser to read 
the handbook. I'll occasionally use screen and ssh{,d} if the box is too 
far from my desk.

So once you release a beta, that's what I'll be trying out first and 
foremost.

But, wouldn't it be interesting to find out the usage patterns for our 
users before making a big list of things to check?

Maybe not enough users do care to make it block QA and releng's time 
when making new releases.

Don't be :)

Cheers,
