The problem is that you can't convince people to use open source software that has a unique/different UI. The only way people seem to be able to "sell" open source apps like Open Office is by saying "Oh, it's just like Microsoft's--except free!"

If that's the main selling point, you'll never see innovative UIs from the open source world.

(Of course, that's not to say that there are no cool UIs in the open source world--there's probably a few out there. Well, one or two, anyways.)
