The user experience problems with Linux mostly lie in the cultural values which cause almost all new code to be written to a command line and scripting interface, with no (or only a shim) GUI. A nice file manager is, well, nice, but it doesn't begin to deal with the fact that almost every other piece of software written for the system in the past (or the forseeable future) is written for hobbyists and hackers rather than for a general audience.
