Yes, it can boot. And you can start some preliminary PIM functions  
that are already sketched:

comes from very old AppKit)

But you can't really use them so far. One key issue is that we have  
no config to use a bluetooth keyboard. And inter-process  
communication fails so the on-screen keyboard doesn't interwork.

Syncing is planned but not ready. But you can expect perfect and  
complete sync between a Mac and QuantumSTEP since both will use the  
same data structures for contacts, events, tasks etc. So there will  
be no data loss by syncing.

I have sent out a request for alpha/beta testers today.
