I can see lots of other people disagree with the OP, I thought I'd chime in too:

Self-evident interfaces (i.e. lots of affordances, very little tutorial needed to get started) can be good for people who just want to pick up an app and understand it.

BUT, there are also people who want to interact with something in the fastest, most efficient way possible. If a novel new UI can shave even milliseconds off of common repeated tasks, a 60 second tutorial is definitely worth it.
