Personally, I subscribe to the school of thought "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

I agree. Common users are not looking for amazingly "advanced" looking new kind of GUIs but something familiar looking that makes work easy, is light on system resources, and doesn't look all bad either. On the other hand, I have a hunch that many OSnews readers would like to see big changes in the Gnome interface just for the sake of change, because they are geeks who want to try new things, and don't like it if their pals have toys that look shinier and newer than the toys they use.
