"The graphical familiarity goes a bit further than Windows 7's text-less taskbar and Kicker (sans virtual desktops, Microsoft seems to be unaware of the existance this feature), Gadgets and Superkaramba. The Window buttons remind me of a (quite polished) Kubuntu KWin theme. And due to the customizability of KDE, Windows may have gotten much farther with hiring their artist to simply do a theme for KDE3 ^^

"However, I hope the developers did more than just changed the GUI (I flinched when I saw the good 'ol Windows XP-style install client), because in 2009, Leopard, GNOME and KDE4 still sport a superior user interface."
