Maven2 about usability ...

It is ironic that software becomes less usable as it becomes more powerful.

Clearly, Maven 2 is more powerful than ANT as uber-build tool. But look at the  snapshot below.Maven's initial interaction

Now, of course the build fails. But a pom.xml is not found is only an INFO message! On the other hand, ANT clearly tells you that build.xml is not found and hence the build failed.

 And what the hell does "Cannot execute mojo: resources" mean for someone who starts with Maven 2?
