Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

RE[2]: Give it some time

No matter what the OS is there is always a need to get under the hood. To discredit an OS for providing flexibility is silly.

There's a difference between providing flexibility and requiring specialized technical knowledge from non-technical users in order to accomplish something that *should* be simple.

As you pointed out, Windows has plenty of problems in that department too - but that doesn't negate the areas where Ubuntu and other distos need improvement. Windows isn't really a great metric to use in terms of usability - it doesn't set the bar terribly high.
