The client currently reports how many blocks I have downloaded, but it would be useful for the client to also report the total number of blocks there are. That way I wouldn't have to check a website to see if my client has all the blocks.

Also it would let me know about how long I have to wait before I have downloaded all the blocks.

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

the qt-client does.

it also has a progress bar, but not a time estimate. with the newer clients its rather quick though (something like a minute per day or so), so much less relevant.
