I think the OLPC developers believe that KDE, GNOME, et al. are too complicated and hard-to-learn for its target audience, third-world children that've probably never used a computer before.

IMHO, it's well suited (and already impressive) for who it's intended for, though probably not for your average OSNews reader.
