The problem is that computers were designed by engineers, who think like engineers. What makes sense to an engineer looks to mere mortals like, well, bug eyed insanity sometimes. Just watch The Big Ban Theory for the humorous aspects of this.
As someone who has worked in security for a long time, I muss confess that it's very easy to create a cool new tool that is interesting and useful to a brilliant engineer. It's a whole different kettle of fish to create one that is useful to the typical IT geek, let alone end users.
