Looking at desktop environments, I see them growing more complex. Take Windows, Gnome, KDE. They might be good for experienced user (don't mean expert), but they are not good for user with simple needs, like email, web browsing, text writing and printing.

I have a problem with this, configuring computers for my parents. Environments implement some internal logic that gets in the way of user with low requirements.

Particular problem is integrated file manager. I mean, the whole environment behaves like a file manager. It is easy to make a mistake and delete or displace something.
