"A lot of bandwidth has been wasted arguing over the lack of
usability in open-source software/free software (henceforth 'OSS').
The debate continues at this moment on blogs, forums, and Slashdot
comment threads. Some people say that bad usability is endemic to
the entire OSS world, while others say that OSS usability is great
but that the real problem is the closed-minded users who expect
every program to clone Microsoft. Some people contend that UI
problems are temporary growing pains, while others say that the OSS
development model systematically produces bad UI. Some people even
argue that the GPL indirectly rewards software that's difficult to
use! (For the record, I disagree...)"
