Gnome "One of the things that the GNOME design crew have been focusing on recently is creating a new approach to application design for GNOME 3. We want GNOME applications to be thoroughly modern, and we want them to be attractive and a delight to use. That means that we have to do application design differently to how we've done it in the past."

It's not about the amount of empty space in the UI, nor is it about the amount of controls in the UI. It's about having the functionality one needs at hand in an interface that is intuitive and fast to use.

I am a Qt programmer and yet I have ditched KDE in favour of Gnome 3. I've been there eversince the first release and all the time it just gets better and better. Still I have hated Rhythmbox for years for being so bloated in the UI. The new mockup of Gnome music player is much better albeit only showing a single very restricted view instead of the "collection view".
