The look  of NeXTSTEP is bland  on purpose.  To  avoid distracting the
users with flashy "user interface". Or, if you want, as a favor to the
applications, to let the users concentrate on the flash and excitement
provided by the applications rather than by the window manager.

If you  really need sexy buttons, you  can always put a  photo of your
naked SO on the "OK" buttons, and of a whip on the "No" buttons.

More  attractive  should be  the  GNUstep  applications  that will  be
available eventually.
