hmm ... tough one.

It's not the matter of crystal icons. It's not even about eye candy or effects. It's about something that is offensive to the eye. I happen to be a designer, and maybe I'm a little over sensitive to this matters, but let's face it people, it's downright ugly.

Maybe it's more functional and feature packed that Windows, Linux and OS X altogether, let's forget about that ... but it looks like something the cat dragged in from 1993.
