Read the archives on http://www.seul.org ( I think ).  This was already
discussed and basically a Simple Linux for end users means adding more 
graphical configuration tools and many nicer apps.

KDE is an example of how it's done.  It has a simple Windows like 
interface ( I keep preaching that Intuitive simply means you already
know how it's done ).  However KDE dose not in any way prevent you from
going to the command line or using a more powerful interface ( if one 
exists ) or even from running those apps which terrify many newbies (
Emacs ).
