Then we both have very different views about GNU/Linux.

Mobile phones are very different machines than pcs, you can't compare
their interfaces that way. The GNU/Linux desktop user is accustomed to
change his user interface at runtime to his or her likings.
I too, like Anzan, do not want some kind of Mac'ish closeness in
Ubuntu, the "free" and "intuitive" operating system (ubuntu.com).
The source is open, so should be the interface.
