Funny, for me, coming from Linux, I like lots of junk.
I liked my fancy E17 desktop in my minimal Ubuntu install.
I liked my Compiz Cube, RSS-GLX screensavers, and Audacious using Panflute and Devilspie with my Gnome desktop.
I like glitz and gimmicks. But, I've always used the classic desktop in Windows. For some reason the Aero theme and the non-classic interface feel slow, kind of like driving sedan after driving a sports car. And the gadgets always seemed kind of "meh" to me...
Regardless, I can't get too worked up about it. I'm pretty much resigned to the idea that interfaces are going to get more and more restrictive.
