I guess the biggest problem with linux desktop is that choices are too many and change quickly. I started using fedora from college days and still do but I realized that my enthusiasm to troubleshoot a problem and learn new things is slowly dying out. Recently, I wanted to convert a png to jpg image. there was no default app to do it. come on, how hard is it. I had to install gimp to do it. I spent a good 10 mins trying to convert it with a default app. I could use the command line but didnt want so installed gimp. These are small things but make helluva difference.
