Would be nice to integrate a blog of some sort in later releases, so you can have a store blog..

i think its a thing that would much better be a 3rd party blog integrated with the userbase (if you want them to be able to comment) as i think adding too many features to one type of product can be dangerous

Of course, in principle, you are very much right.

However, it really depends on the strength of the underlying architecture:
one can see around really robust systems, holding elegantly LOTs of features
(I am thinking about Drupal, for ex.).

Magento has entered the world’s eComm scene like a super-star,
giving suddenly a fresh hope to the thousands of us entrapped for years confused
in the various quick-sands called osC, X, Zen, Cubes, etc.

It is only natural that we all expect a lot from Magento
and really wish, hope & pray
that will *deliver the goods*, so-to-say.

Such beginner’s enthusiasm is understandable and should be tolerated:
we all dream, time-to-time, about an all-comprehensive SW,
that will take care of all our needs, is it not? tongue rolleye
Though we also know it is somewhat impossible.

Magento undoubtedly has a promising future and we all know that soon
it will become a Champion Software: why not, then, in the heavyweight category?

Let’s wait for the ‘core’ to stabilize and then I think the Community herself
will provide us with TONs of features grin : compare, for ex.,
the thousands of osC contributions made available by their members!.

TIME is the main factor: Magento appeared on the scene just one month ago,
but, given enough time, will soon blossom in a full-fledged, good-natured GIANT,
capable to satisfy not all, but, surely enough, a LOT of its members’ needs.

Yours friendly:
MAGentleman, the eVangelist cool smile
