Some force to get them learn using 'complex' interfaces isn't such a bad 
thing. It may seem hard at first, but it pays! (My mother recently begun 
to use short cuts in her day job, and she say she is faster now). So don't 
pretend that people get away better by not learing there tools:
Better a tool that forces you to learn and then may be used effective 
than a tool that can be used without knowing it, but if you know it is much
less effective than the other one.
