This is *not* what Unix has historically been. Historically, Unix has
a history of being "expert-friendly" - because people are experts a
lot longer than they are new users.
If you want a Unix optimized to attract new users, there's Ubuntu. If
you want a system built that way, there's Windows.
The system should be optimized for experts. The environment that new
users are placed in can be optimized for them.
