I think the problem is this... A developer will get noticed by writing a great application, not for writing great documentation. All to often under linux it is assumed the user already has an understanding of the OS.
This problem is exasperated by the package managers. You choose to install something, it automatically selects software depenancies, yet no documentation, even if it exists on the tree.
