Er, hello!? Syllable www.syllable.org, Haiku haiku-os.org have had slim, modern, legacy-free GUI appservers for years!

you've forgotten SkyOS, and the most prominent of all non - Windows desktop Os's, Mac OS X ;-)
btw, with Vista, Windows too has gained a quite similar visual stack architecture - the DWM does pretty much the same task as the "application server" of other OS's
in reality, it is Linux that is the only one alleged "desktop operating system" still stuck with such an old and overly complex GUI system, instead of a more modern and streamlined architecture...
