I am not interested in a flamewars, just in hearing opinions.

What's the big deal with the Web of Trust?

It's a geeky thing, too difficult for non-computer freaks? That's what I
would say.

I find the usability of OTR a lot better. Unfortunately, there is no
easy solution to sign files or mails with OTR, it doesn't work well for
software vendors.

Wondering, can we ever get a replacement for gpg which has same
features, is at least as secure and better usability, while gpg is so
established and conservative?
