This is actually quite sad. If Linux is to ever become an alternative to
Windows on workstations for regular users (such as managers, secretars,
or any other type of people who think they don't need to "learn
computers") need to have stuff as you say ... just work.

Personally I would love to be able to contribute to something like this.
Maybe there are many others like me. Big companies have been investing
into linux as a server and maybe it's time the desktop needs some
attention too.
