In my opinion:

more user-friendly system -> more dumb users not reading TFM
                          -> more noise on the mailing lists (how do
                             I do that... etc)
                          -> more companies releasing more
                             closed-source drivers as modules
			  -> more problems which cannot be fixed and
                             more hardware not working on older kernels
-> not so good linux :-(

There is no advantage without disadvantages.

There are running jobs.  Why don't you go chase them?
