You've just never seen REAL linux phones. Just google some Maemo or MeeGo
videos, or visit a nearby Nokia store and try N9 with MeeGo. After that
you'll never dare to rant about single-task interface again.

You kinda got that with GNOME2 already. There's a number of Mac clones, a
number of Windows clones, a number of clones of things nobody ever heard
about and even some clones of clones, but they all are so unpopular that
you've never heard of most (or maybe any) of them. And there are good
reasons for that.
