and the only reason it has been done is because of looks, which is pretty damn silly.

Non-geeks tend to like uniformity and nice looks. I like them as well so i guess that makes me neither X nor Y but a Z factor?

If linux will ever get a userbase outside of geekdom, nice looks are required.. Also even with said implementation above, the app's still do not *feel* right to me outside of their native environment.
