I've tinkered with this and can say that it's "real", but isn't ready for novice use. I can't wrap my brain around the simple stuff enough to do anything on my own. The documentation is geared towards seasoned programmers.
Although I think I figured out "installation", I have no idea how to write an application or even get their 'hello world' to work on my own. This is certainly not the fault of the developers.
