Au contraire, it appears to have more to do with people (notably, native
English speakers) believing that "experimental" means "unstable". When Fb
1.5 was released, Classic was stable. If it were not, it wouldn't have
been in a release.

However, with nothing useful from field-testers regarding its performance,
etc. on Windows, with real-life loads, it was released marked
"experimental". Two years and three sub-releases later, with lots of high
volume deployments, it's probably even past "experimental" now. :-))
