I think we (the Ubuntu community) massively overplay the standardisation
in ability and expectations of a Windows user. I don't see why we seem
to feel that Linux needs umpteen window managers to satisfy all its
users (which it clearly does) but Windows users have only ever wanted
the Windows 2000 interface and are completely stumped as soon as the
start menu is at the top.
