Here my point of view about this: a) not everybody like those eye candy filled 
interface or style ... sure they make nice screenshot for promotion but can 
you work for 8 hours a day with those? b) not everybody have top of the line

step one or the QNX one because they are simple and sober and don't make your 
eye bleed after 4 hours of work
