KDE I tend to believe that the best interfaces have already been made. Behaviourally, CDE is the best and most consistent interface ever made. It looked like ass, but it always did exactly as you told it to, and it never did anything unexpected. When it comes to looks, however, the gold standard comes from an entirely different corner - Apple's Platinum and QNX' PhotonUI. Between all the transparency, flat-because-it's-hip, and stitched leather violence of the past few years, one specific KDE theme stood alone in bringing the best of '90s UI design into the 21st century, and updating it to give everything else a run for its money. This is an ode to Christoph Feck's Skulpture.

Regarding updates: In the "master" branch support for KWin shadows has been added, but I always had the feeling I was the only one still using the style, so I never made a new release.


Maybe this article led to some new downloads and renewed interest - and thus, motivation for an update ;) .

Thanks for commenting!
