The first thing that caught my attention was the installation routine...
Now that is slick! I think both KDE2 and GNOME should look at that. It
would make installation and updating a painless task. On the downside
it's application packages that come with it are a bit slim.

I downloaded Ximian today. It is very slick, but I just like the look
feel of KDE2. That is my two cents worth.
