If you want the Windows experience use Windows, if you want the OSX experience use OSX, if you want the Linux experience use your choice of Distro.
Vive la difference.
It is pointless producing 200 clones.

going back to the bicycle analogy, by designing a bicycle with rounder and same sized wheels is a clone of the elliptical wheels? really?It is pointless producing 200 clones.
can you explain me the benefit of referring to a folder that has applications in it as /bin better than /programs?
if not better how is the intuitiveness the same?
So far, I've only heard 1 person complaining about the filesystem in this thread, apologies if I've missed anyone, and while I'm not going to say you're wrong, I think it's safe to say that most other users couldn't care less what their filesystem looks like as long as it's usable.
You miss the analogy, obviously. The point is that there is nothing at all wrong with the German language. When in the US, I refer to "glasses". In Germany, I refer to "die Brille". Being fluent in both languages can be useful. When using Windows, I think of "\Program Files". In Linux "/bin". The issue with "\Program Files" versus "/bin" seems to be yours.I don't know why you like analogies but that is a poor one, assumption is that there is something wrong with the German language when there isn't. by calling a folder /bin and not /programs creates an issue, there is no benefit of calling it /bin.
I prefer the analogy to fixed-wind and rotary-wing aircraft. No matter. Again with the comparison to Windows. And who, besides you, has decided that the wheels are square on the Linux penny farthing?If you want an analogy then here is one, take all bicycles and consider them as the "operating system" in general. Consider a modern mountain bike with oval wheels to be Windows and then consider a penny farthing with square wheels to be Linux.
The big square wheel you seem to see. The ones you seem to want to see.Ubuntu is the equivalent of putting stickers and ribbons on the penny farthing instead of dealing with the issue of a big square wheel
Another comparison to Windows, and to square wheels you seem to see.Indeed both are bikes and both will get you places. by refusing to develop where Windows done better Linux sticks with the square wheels.
Who says they are not at least as round or rounder? You? I think the wheels are as round and useful as the alternative. Nobody can make a perfectly round wheel. I don't see either as having done a better or worse job than the other. Must an alternative be "better" or "worse"? Why not just different? Why not just better at some things. Windows and Linux do some things better than the other. Why is this an issue? This is not an "either or" proposition. There is nothing wrong with having both an airplane and a helicopter to fly as the purpose or mood moves you.A better approach would be to reduce the size of the wheels and make more rounder than Windows.
