> Never, never, somebody has complained to me about the interface being unintuitive or ugly.

Well, I do. I hate ugly OSS software, but ugliness is often the norm. It may sound pathetic, but using ugly software is a real pain to me.

Also most of the work I do, I do for business customers. And when I show up with ugly or overly complicated OSS solutions, they often perceive these as unprofessional because they the look does not give the feel that it is worthy software. Same goes for web sites of said software. Many OSS project websites are complicated and not appealing to business decision makers. Yes, it is a stupid way of judging, but it is the reality.

Your problem is that you want the rest of the world to conform to your current aesthetic taste. It's impossible, unless you force that taste from up above. So, you are barking at the wrong tree, try Apple instead.

And by the way, don't look at common people on the street, they all look so messy and ugly...
