Gnome "The team is proud to announce the release of MATE Desktop 1.6. This release is a giant step forward from the 1.4 release. In this release, we have replaced many deprecated packages and libraries with new technologies available in GLib. We have also added a lot of new features to MATE." Look at those screenshots. This is what GNOME is supposed to be: elegant, understated, to-the-point. I should try this.

Elegant? Understated?? Are you serious?? It's fine if you like it but I'd hardly call gnome 2 elegant or understated. Configurable sure but elegant it is not not.

I understood him to mean the lesser definition of elegant, as a synonym of simple. Which would be redundant with understated but more appropriate than the main definition of elegant: "Stylish and/or graceful in appearance and movement".
