Fedora Core "Linux fans hope that the interface changes in Windows 8 will drive more users to Linux. But the open source operating system is facing interface challenges of its own. Part of the problem is that - after so much controversy within the Linux community - there are so many interfaces to chose from. But the new version of Fedora - a desktop focused version of Red Hat’s distribution of Linux - is offering users an easier way to choose between the many flavors of Linux GUI."

Agreed, although I don't mind if Linux gets more popular, I sure as hell don't want it adhering a one-size-fits-all solution. There are other systems for that, what defines the Linux or rather *nix ecosystem for me is choice, as you said, total user control.

The large amount of WM's, DE's etc available to try allows to find the solution that works just right for you rather than settling with someone else's decision of what you should use.

And if you really don't want to have to make that choice then there are disctributions that will cater for you aswell, but it's something you choose rather than it being the only option available.
