I don't want to fan the flames, but isn't that exactly what Wojciech is
suggesting?  That Linux went wrong when it began to cater too much to
the perceived need to give former Windows users a "user-friendly"

Anyway, I suspect that this discussion more properly belongs on the
advocacy mailing list. The OP's question probably should have been
directed there in the first place. 

Let's drop it here, and get back to answering the kind of howto
questions where this list excels.
