That's not true - well, at least when you won't use bash and shell tools. It's possible to use Linux on desktop system without knowledge of UNIX commands - I do :).
What for? For people who don't want this kind of thing? ;).
Some think UNIX systems should be more user friendly and there are proofs for that: PC-BSD (one click installer) or Ubuntu (user friendly Linux distro - well maybe in a next few years) and of course KDE and Gnome.

You know, the whole Windows-Mac OS thing reminds me of (perhaps apocryphal) stories I'd heard in the past about the M16 buttault rifle. When it was first introduced at the beginning of...
MOX had been made for people who treat computers like a tool, who just want to do something with that tool and don't want to care about dependencies for their packages, manually editing text files to setup daemons, compiling drivers to run sound or video card, etc... MacOSs are average user oriented systems where mp3 file is object with music and QuickTime movie file is object with a movie, where MS Word doc file is document.
Linux is for people who just like that kind of software on their desktops and want to use it by choice. Linux is a project with a great potential - MOX is kind of Linux with user friendly GUI ;).
On the other hand Windows... well Bill G. was the right guy, at the right place, in the right time :).
