I'm very much in agreement with others here. This whole "Modern" style 
argument is based solely on the eye of the beholder. I happen to LIKE the 
QiNX (admittedly third party) and Phase styles, however I'm willing to admit 
that some out there might think of them being a little old. We all must 
remember that these things are NOT hard fact, but personal taste.
