Easy to use and one command for more often task or action is not subjective.

"Easy to use" is very subjective. If you don't believe me, ask 10,000 people if a given GNOME app is easy to use or not, and then tell me which objective measure will pick out the wrong answers from the right ones.

I.e. I would like a  Gnome tool

I think it's very important for everyone involved in some form of Linux desktop thought-leadership (even people like myself who have no leadership role whatsoever, and are just ISV reps) to step away from "I would like". You and I are not interesting GNOME users, in part because we already _are_ GNOME users. The interesting GNOME users are the ones that haven't tried it yet, and we need to figure out why they haven't. There are lots of things that I want in GNOME, but if they aren't going to bring a hundred thousand of my closest friends along as well, I would hope that nobody goes out of their way to do them.
