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.

Not sure if this is a troll, but really? Why exactly?

I have to explain why a Single Window at a time interface which hides as much information as possible (like the time!) shows huge amounts of empty space which means you need to swipe a lot to get info instead of it all being on one screen... sucks on the desktop?

On PCs - yeah, absolutely. I have a WP7 phone though and I think this is where Metro shines.

Yes, I was talking about PCs. I haven't used it on a phone yet since they don't sell it here but the idea of putting a phone OS on a desktop seems... not soo great.
