open source software often — i think less so lately — tends towards ui's that only the people who made them know to use; but honestly i'd rather at least have all the arcane buttons visible at once so i can press them at random than being told 'here's a button you can press :))) aren't you a big girl!'
really it comes down to alienation. commercial software is not made to be useful, it's made to generate value. the user is an obstacle to be solved away; and non-commercial software too easily internalises this principle and ends up deciding it needs to be walled away from users who haven't proven their worth to some obscure techno-calvinist standard, in a complete betrayal of what's supposed to be the point of it being 'free' and 'open'
