This is terrific!

Now all someone has to do is to produce a coherent and usable Desktop environment that isn't too ugly.

We also need to replace Xorg with Wayland.

Yeah, Microsoft has a long way to go to get a good looking desktop environment. They should copy KDE4 or Gnome more....

Ah, trolling the troll ;)

I would actually be happy if they copied Gnome 2.x interface for Windows. Or just reverted to Windows 2000/XP Classic ways. But please not KDE 4. Default Vista and 7 UIs are enough of an annoyance.
