I still hear them say that XP looks like playmobil and nobody who's serious would use that bluish something with the big icons and everything looks so childish
Only back then the bloggers/web2.0 hadn't that much of an influence...
Exactly. Even most of the people I know who aren't big Vista fans (but do use it) always tell me "at least the UI doesn't look so rediculously childish as in XP anymore."
Honestly, before Jamie I'd never met anyone who actually liked Luna. Besides myself that is, but I'm not hard to please, and will pretty much always use the defaults for anything unless they're really horrifically bad.
