X11, Window Managers We have some very good news for those of us with a love for the Common Desktop Environment. I'm a huge fan of CDE - I've even dedicated an article to it - so I'm excited about this. CDE has been released as open source under the LGPL, and can be downloaded as of today for Debian and Ubuntu. Motif will follow later.

the Crayola XP interface. The default control panel was fcuking insulting. The window dressing [...] I'd take the Windows 95/2000 classic theme over the god awful XP/7/8 themes any day of the week.

Well with Windows you can easily turn them off... (and control panel stuff is one click away, button visible in the same window).
Good luck changing what's messed up like that in OSX.
