I am torn on this. On the one hand I have personal experience of how people will chose beauty and convenience over security and functionality. I was selling software during the phase from DOS to Windows and people wanted a proper MS Windows(TM) version even if the DOS version was better software. The division of HQ development into Frontend and Backend does promise a better user experience in the long term.
Moodle has made significant strides in terms of usability for example the drag and drop file capability and many other tweaks. The ability to install plugins from within the browser offers the possibility of greater experimentation and uptake of contributed code. If quizzing is important to an organisation then Moodle simply wins period, nothing else available paid for or free is even in the same league.
