We are getting there (gnome)

Nat Friedman 2005: "the most important problem facing the Linux desktop communities (GNOME, KDE) right now. The biggest impact these groups can have is to make fundamental functions easy: basic operations like managing files and changing simple settings are difficult because of poor user interfaces, slow software, and bad error handling; hardware still doesn't just work, etc.

So, the biggest issue for GNOME and KDE isn't a strategic one. It's an execution problem. We've got to get better at finishing what we've started.

Take a look gnome 2.14, we are getting there.

Sometimes things that were complicated for ages just get really simple; like with the preferred applications dialog.
