Fair enough, though this doesn't apply to all projects, some projects like Firefox are capable of being user-focused.

Users serve no use but to file bug reports.

Well, with such an attitude you'll never be able to reach wide acceptance and wide acceptance is what you need if you want BSD to be truelly useable (even for power users, think of things like drivers for BSD, plugins etc).
