Do the actually not like their users?

That's. Just. Hideous. Does the GNOME team not like their users? (Ducks to avoid barrage of flames)
Disclosure: I use KDE, but I guarantee it has its fair share of annoyances not unlike our editor's "strobe light" situation in GNOME.
As for the desktop wallpaper/background, well, I have to insist that GNOME got it wrong. Routing all users to a file browser application (Nautilus) to change desktop appearance is unacceptable. Heck, even Microsoft Windows does this right: Right-click on the desktop and bring up a context menu. How difficult can that be?
