Your post wouldn't sound so trollish if sites like betterdesktop.org weren't available to disprove your point...

And they have a better standing - why? volunteerings throwing their 5 cents worth into the discussion elevates their opinions no higher than mine. Stop trying to elevate people to god like status because they happen to have the prefix 'expert'.

Its a pain because to access the most basic of applications you need to go through so many clicks its totally inefficient. People may have trashed it, but look at what SGI provided 15 years ago in terms of their Indigo desktop - designed from the ground up for non-technical people, and worked as intended. So far all I've seen are desktops with alot of bling strapped onto a very complex operating system with very little effort to integrate the two.

For the record, Microsoft and Apple are guilty of that too. What you end up with is a terribly inconsistant operating system that is difficult to use, especially when the excriment hits the fan.

The thing betterdesktop.org proves the most, are the effect of the big NIH problem some have. Again rather than working with the comunity and joining ongoing and thriving efforts like Open Usability, they start their own. And I find it telling that the last post on that site was over 9 months ago.
