I think it's pointless for linux developers to try to make linux more mainstream and user-friendly unless they are willing to get away from FHS ( http://www.linux-foundation.org/en/FHS ).

It's out-dated and very not-user-friendly. FHS is what is holding linux back from being mainstream and user-friendly and no one seems to even be trying to get away from it.

I don't see it as outdated mainly because it supports A LOT MORE hardware than Windows and MAC out-of-the-box. If you want eye candy, download a distro of choice and get Beryl/Compiz and laugh at Vista's choking effects.
