At the moment - and due to the nature of the current Cocoon release - this
is the case (unless anyone corrects me). You see Cocoon is a framework - so
after installing it you really do not have "anything". You still need to
build whatever application you require. And Cocoon provides a great deal
that will help you do that.

What is currently missing is addtional documentation and practices that make
the application building part easier (when do I use which component or
concept to do what). But again, that can depend on your specific scenario.

So, as Andrew wrote, I think the learning curve is quite steep - but there
_are_ people out there who can help flatten the curve - and the journey up
the hill is worth making. And things will start to become easier as the
technology is adopted, documentation is written and applications are built.
