the newest version of mandrake linux makes more headway towards that end and improves on many of the graphical tools used to manage linux.
for linux, you not only have multiple guis to choose from, but competing distributions like red hat and mandrake are each developing their own wizards and tools to help manage hardware and daily tasks.
