Here I have to agree with Nicolas and I hate to say it, but today many people 
are attracted by the look. That phenomenon does not apply only on the software. 
Personaly I am fine with the next-look which does not distract me, but...

Many people will look on the outer shell without looking what is inside. 
Sometimes it seems to me that in KDE or Gnome, the theming is the only thing 
that you can do there (just look at the control panel, how many options you 
have for configuring the look and feel and compare the m to other opptions).

Just another 0.02 cents on people being distracted by eye-candy.
Part of my job (the one for food and rent :-) is training people in developing 
Linux drivers and embedded Linux. Of course, my training machines run Linux and 
because about 98% of my audience are Windows people never ever having used 
Linux I provide them the KDE desktop.
Whenever I have finished a training I am amazed about how the people in my 
classes messed up those machines just by opening the control panel and changing 
every f..ing option you have there. I usually wonder whether people really 
listen to what I am teaching them while clicking their time away on all these 
visual options KDE gives them.
Just my opinion on eye-candy and beind distracted by it...

Cheers,
Andreas
