forget that attractive interfaces are more efficient then utilitarian ones (google for don normans emotional design), forget that stuff like expose wouldnt be possible before on linux, and isnt possible on windows, forget the fact that a vecoctorized desktop means resolution independance (when you bring the res up, stuff looks better, not smaller).

people here saying that this is pointless are either extremely dumb, or just dont know what they are talking about.
