Yes, this, a thousand times this.

I moved to Linux because it was a better platform than Windows for the 
things I care about, not just the whole FOSS thing. As Linux has gotten more 
popular, the GUI developers are stripping all the best parts of the platform 
in order to more closely ape the more disagreeable parts of Windows.

A cautionary tale of what happens when you open the doors too widely and 
allow the riff-raff in. You get KDE 4 and Gnome 3.
