I for one don't like the trend of devoting huge chunks of ram, OPENGL and CPU just to run a "COOL" interface that try to think for me, please let my apps use the resources.

This, very much. I really don't understand how sacrificing functionality for appearance became the norm over the last few years, yet here we are with Aero and Gnome Shell and company. Must needs have more eyecandy, lololololololololol!!!11

(You know what's funny though? When I was a teenager I was whining about AIGLX not working. Now I hate it and wish it had never been invented. Always be careful what you wish for.)
