It's interesting and certainly refreshing UI wise compared to other nix's. 
My only gripe (which I also have about Vista) is it seems predominently very 
dark.  I'd love to see something on nix that took the approach (not actually 
copying) the thought behind OS X.  Note I'm a Windows user primarily so I'm 
not a Mac zealot, but to me MS could learn from Apple and perhaps Ubuntu or 
even elive could do the same?
