gnome has the look and feel of Windows 98 - a group of high school students could design a better UI.

What a shame.

Umm, have you actually used Win98? How does GNOME resemble it? And I just get the feeling that you just want some eye-candy and bling-bling and aren't actually referring to the UI design itself..The UI design between XP -> Vista didn't really change much, just some button placings. A new theme (Aero) on top of that, and you call that innovation then?

It would be nice if you actually cared to elaborate a little instead of trolling.

Son, I've used everything from a Vic20 onward. And GNOME and Windows 98 have the same clunky feel as though they're about to crash at any moment.

Where is a professional linux desktop that is built for business and that resembles a professional business desktop with sleek lines of those that come with Windows 2003 Server?

I am not a fan if MS and hate Vista.

Many people use Gnome exactly because its minimalistic appearance...me included. Ever heard the expression "less is more"? Besides, I disagree that it looks like Win98, but I agree that its not all transparent gradient candybar-striped, and I love it ;)
