Debian and its clones Developer Frans Pop, author of debtree, posted an article showing the evolution in size of the GNOME desktop environment in recent Debian releases. The picture he paints isn't particularly pretty: the default GNOME install has increased drastically in size over the years.

"I want my desktop to look nice. It seems to be a general consensus among desktop users if current trends are any indication."

That's because you are not a professional who's primary focus is finishing his job. And because you probably never saw an expert's workstation and deduce conclusions from flashing your weeny with your best friends. There's simply no other explanation for your attitude.

On the other hand, the state of modern computing *is* embarrassing; not because of lack of flashiness but because of the chaotic state of the industry.
