Red Hat "Sex appeal doesn't seem to be the focus of this release. Instead, Red Hat makes a strong statement in its competitive infrastructure in the form of well-executed virtualisation and user session controls in its RHEL5 release. The aggressive number of components inside this operating system still beg to be sewn together more comprehensively with better administrative tools, but the fundamentals are definitely in there."

Oh My! No "eye candy" that's as flashy as Mac or Microsoft. Just a solid, sensable, stable, and reliable OS that customers prefer for mission critical operations.
"Shame on you Red Hat" for concentrating on what an OS should do.

Composited desktops remind me a bit of the Hula Hoops that were such a fad during the late 1950s.

For your viewing pleasure, let me draw some analogies with imagery.


The Windows Aero Hula Hoop:

The MacOS X Hula Hoop:

And the Linux/Compiz/Beryl Hula Hoop:

These are the featured images on Wikipedia, and I was amazed at how perfect they were for this analogy. ;-)
