"It's inferior, inconsistent and lacks any real unified direction."

There is no denying the lack of consistency however some consider this more of a strength than a weakness.
As for it being inferior, you are incorrect. Lower resource usage, multi user security model, modular drivers !> inferior.

Unfortunately you are correct with the lack of direction, it will keep Linux off the mainstream desktop forever.
