First of all, we all know that Linux on the desktop is a joke.

Well, lets see, my mother and my wife both use it. Well, my mom *did*, until my cousin came over and through the kindness of his heart installed Windows again because he thought she was lost beyond comprehension. (the only thing she does is surf and email, one program.. oh my.)

My wife uses it on a daily basis, and everyday uses more of it. Yes, she touches the command line, also. She's not a computer geek, she's a medical laboratorian who does not deal with computers at work at all.. except for a dos 5.0 machine that runs some proprietary dos program for patient files.

Just because you can't figure out how to click in Linux, doesn't mean the rest of the world is stupider than you. I think you found the niche of you being behind everyone else.
