You have to take into account that for the first 7-8 year of linux's life it was aimed at propeller heads and sys admnins. the attention to the desktop market is still a really new thing. The last few years have been spent building up modern applications development environments (KDE and GNOME) which are both coming to real maturity now. I think over the next year we are going to start seeing the first wave of truely end user oriented free software. I've used evolution quite a bit since the beta's started stabalizing, and I can tell you that it is as slick and intuitive as it looks. It is really going to spark up a storm.
