Linux has an ease of use problem. So what do people do? Instead of coming up with one standard way of solving the problem, everyone and their uncle tries to come up with their own solution. There's KDE, now Gnome, Corel also wants to get in the act... End result: it just gets too confusing. I think the linux community should get together and ask themselves-do we really care about making linux easy to use or not? If they care, they'll stick with one dominant standard (always giving others the right to choose alternatives) but if they don't care then might as well stick with a commandline.
