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.

Gnome is getting better, but really? I need a freaking 3 rd party application to change the theme??? And I can't even change basic colors like I could in windows 3.0 ??

I've just about had it with gnome's locked down lack of any configurability that I'm about ready to jump ship. Perhaps I will give kde a try after using gnome for 10 years
