Exactly. We're losing sight of the fact that the UI is just a means to an end. All of social stuff they are adding is great, but why mess with the UI?
We've been using the mouse and keyboard for decades because there simply isn't anything better. Its the same with the UI. IMO Gnome had it perfect (once you got rid of the double bars anyway). There is no reason to mess with it.

Whats more simple and efficient than Windows? You want something you click an exe and install it/run it. No messing with dependencies or config files or just straight up random BS like you get in Linux. I go back
to Windows when I want to stop thinking about what my OS is doing.
