KDE I tend to believe that the best interfaces have already been made. Behaviourally, CDE is the best and most consistent interface ever made. It looked like ass, but it always did exactly as you told it to, and it never did anything unexpected. When it comes to looks, however, the gold standard comes from an entirely different corner - Apple's Platinum and QNX' PhotonUI. Between all the transparency, flat-because-it's-hip, and stitched leather violence of the past few years, one specific KDE theme stood alone in bringing the best of '90s UI design into the 21st century, and updating it to give everything else a run for its money. This is an ode to Christoph Feck's Skulpture.

0.2.4 is from 29 Dec 2010 and there are 2 dozen fixes added in the mean time. The kde-look.org page does not have any Debian packages available anyway ( try to download them I dare you ;) ).

This said all my other points stand since I need to build it from source anyway. ;)

And I'll add 2 more since I started KDE4 just to test this:
1. (using Atelier ) the button style is not applied to the KDE StartMenu nor to the Systray menu, although strangely it's applied to the task list applet.
2. I found that the "KDE 2" window decoration fits the style better than the default Skulpture one.
