It goes far beyond quirks and hbuttles, to the root cause: slopware.
I admit I've never heard of a 'standard GUI' let alone a 'more standard GUI'. Are they for sale?
You misspelled inscrutable.
True - but ask yourself "Who cares?"
"Where is the KDE documentation? Why is so much of it incomplete? How do I take a screenshot in Linux? I hit Ctrl+C, closed my app, and now Ctrl+V won't paste anything! Why does my system have 8 text editors? Why do these for my daughter?"
Those are the things people care about.
Again "Who cares?" The overwhelming majority of the world just doesn't care about a C++ compiler, having a web server, or free remote desktop. That doesn't mean they're not valuable to me, or you, or to whoever.
Linux: tell me again why aladin is in the distro?

I'm claiming it's because that form looks peculiar, as you noticed. The whole system looks totally unprofessional - like so much of the software in the Linux-OSS milieu. Take a look at the commercial code in some of those links, and you'll see a world of difference.
Do you honestly think any of them would 'come around' if they couldn't make money off Linux? Linux is a business proposition for those firms, and that's it. It's not a philosophical issue like it is for you and I and cola.
And I would guess HP is not making money off their Linux desktop offerings.
Well, Ghost, that depends on who you ask, what their needs are, etc.
Lack of visual style seems endemic to Linux-OSS.
Nice bit of sarcasm -
They probably should. I use IE as little as possible - only when I want to download updates from MS, or view certain websites or video online.
I've switched to Opera for the last month or so. Nice browser.
Not without a long, vicious fight.
