Gnome "The team is proud to announce the release of MATE Desktop 1.6. This release is a giant step forward from the 1.4 release. In this release, we have replaced many deprecated packages and libraries with new technologies available in GLib. We have also added a lot of new features to MATE." Look at those screenshots. This is what GNOME is supposed to be: elegant, understated, to-the-point. I should try this.

"The OSX Dock/Ubuntu Launcher concept where running apps and favorite apps are accessed in the same way is much more intuitive.

"Intuitive" is an over-used buzzword that to me doesn't mean squat; it has lost its meaning as people seem to just toss the word around in every context possible when talking about computers. Sorry, but there aren't too many parts of computers that follow the definition of "intuitive"... and that includes graphical user interfaces.
"

I agree with Intuitive as a bad description. But given the last two points (VM, SSD) in my OP these allow the interface to be less complex because launching an app and switching to an app is the same action.

I really like this because is using a non UI technologies to make the UI more simple. Ie it's getting the computer to work for you instead of being anal about controlling the state of every app thats running on your desktop.
