It's amusing to see how the Gnome system menu bar + window title bar + window menu bar + window tool bar uses up half of the screen. (Though I think the plan is to have a custom UI that's more oriented to one app at a time. The machines aren't too powerful.)

And pay the interviewer no attention, 'cause as far as I can tell they don't understand what's going on at all. ("Can you plug in a CD-ROM drive?" The whole point of these systems is to use them in places where even stuff like wall power isn't available!)
