I'd like to ask two questions:

1. Is automounting working, either with HAL/DBUS or
   with automounter from ports?

2. Is there support for german language?

If both can be answered with "yes", it's probably a good
choice to recommend the use of Mate for german users who
want something stable and usable. While I have been "solving"
this problem with a "normal" Gnome 2 installation in the
past, it feels buggy and tends to dissolve over time... :-(
