OOO but it does IMO. wen you present such an uncohesive list of ugly options 
that says alot about your overall elegance.
I hate to sound like my wife wen I leave home poorly dressed, but the way we 
present ourself as a huge impact in this fast consuming low attention span 
world, the impact is of the worst kind and stands as a huge first entry level 
barrier that translate in something like this to "Joe facebook"  user "this 
guys are clueless and I don't want to be like them" i might also note that we 
have loads of such problems across KDE and this is not the worst case, but if 
we truly want a elegant polished desktop we need to start doing that, 
providing an overall polished experience were no detail is left to chance.
