Obviously you have not been on a design team for any software. There is always an idiot's compebreastion between an buttumed "easy to use" and "more powerful" interface, when in fact, there is no such compebreastion, the real issue is that it is easier to remove functionality than it is to represent it in a logical manner.

GNome is dumbing down the system by removing functionality, not by thinking about the functionality and how to represent it best. In the end, leaving the users without options.
KDE, IMHO, is doing a far better job analyzing and understanding features and presenting them more clearly without, in fact, removing them.
Hey, user interfaces are HARD. VERY HARD. You are trying to present concepts to users, who are probably not versed in the basics, in a way that they can use. Removing or hiding functionality is almost always a mistake because it buttumes your users are idiots and "can't handle the truth." Doing the work to present features to the users in an easy to understand and efficient way is an art and it takes time and effort. At least KDE is doing the work, GNOME isn't bothering.
