There isn't much we can do about that almost every style has been used
before and if we are completly honest Mac expend lots of time thinking
in what would be the best option for a desktop environment (i'm not
saying to copy it) so some similarity may be necessary

Humm you mabe be right but that could be change, if the user have the
option to change the itensity of the transparacy. and if the words have
an appropriate shadow behind.

Someone yesterday (sorry for not remembering the name) said that he
couldn't make his family change into gnome due to the graphics and i
understand him because i have the same problem, if gnome has a better
look and feel it will be more used.
My idea is to change the look and feel of gnome into something completly
diferent that will make people get interessed. Transparacy is just an
idea but i hope we can get somewhere discussing the subject.
we must find a way of pleasing everybody with the GUI interface

Oh and ragarding labels just a quick opinion 

if the labels are going to stay near the icons (wich after thinking a
bit i agree with) can it be lined at the right side of the icon? I mean
the box with the label start directly above the icon. Being in the
center makes it confusing.

there is another BIG problem with gnome at the moment that i have
experienced, after instalation and after being st up gnome does not work
very well when it comes to pass the image into the screen, i've been
experiencing lots of problems,like lines going across, or screen turning
black while using mouse or keybord.
