Gnome The day is finally here, the day that the GNOME team releases GNOME 3.0, the first major revision of the GNOME project since 2002. Little of GNOME 2.x is left in GNOME 3.0, and as such, you could call it GNOME's KDE4. We're living in fortunate times, what, with two wildly divergent open source desktops.

You have a very incorrect definition of the word radical. This is the first 2 definitions from dictionary.com:

rad·i·cal
   [rad-i-kuhl] Show IPA
–adjective
1.
of or going to the root or origin; fundamental: a radical difference.
2.
thoroughgoing or extreme, especially as regards change from accepted or traditional forms: a radical change in the policy of a company.

The changes in the Windows UI, over the years, do not meet this definition. The fundamental UI paradigm in Windows has not changed since Windows 95. None of the changes in Windows approach the changes in OS X, or of the massive fundamental changes being attempted with Gnome Shell or Unity.
