Linux isn't designed for the mainstream public. Everytime I tell my Dad to hit the Start button, he draws a blank. Now you want to burden him with different interfaces? Linux customers must all be programmers and power users. If Windows customers were power users, I'd bet Windows would be a lot better! A lot is lost in making it accessable to idiots.

Besides, when Windows was separate from the kernel (Windows 3.x), everyone said it was cheesy.
