Along with bloat, and then there's things like trying to configure it
*bleah*. And I used to complain that to run kde, you needed a dozen things
running... at least kde acts the way I expect a GUI on a ->UNIX<--derived
o/s to work. Gnome, with its k3wl interface (don't start - I just
installed the latest fc17 on someone's workstation), and its menus that
wave, or the one on ubuntu that my stepson was using for a while, that
exploded when they went away....

If you really, really want an o/s with a GUI accepted, make it acceptable
by businesses, where non-computerphiles learn to use 'em.
