Disagree. Many, many Linux enthusiasts take your point of view
seriously. The whole point of the Ubuntu distro is solving this
problem. Zillions of man hours have gone into it. Of course it's
still often a problem especially if your needs fall out in the long
tail of the demand curve. But it can be done - witness the progress
of the mainstream Linux desktop. The average user can now do
everything they do on proprietary OSes without ever needing to open a
terminal or edit a config file; this was not the case just a few years
ago.

Just out of curiosity, what specifically are the main issues that make
you less productive than you would be on a non-free OS?
