It strikes me that the single biggest difference between the screen
shots is the theme (widget, icon, background and window manager). KDE is
shinier and more eye-catching. It also has more buttons and so looks
more detailed and interesting (in a screenshot), but I think this is a
very secondary concern.

Should we start the default theme flame-fest again? I don't think so.
How about we run a grand default-theme competition and let our community
get involved with the design. (I envisage this being judged rather than
voted on so we get something that is both usable and pretty, because
votes only go to pretty.)
