Linux

Fedora 16 boots into a cartoonish desktop adorned with a wallpaper that depicts something that should be Nautilus diving in the deep seas, as the rather obvious tribute to Verne. Other than that, it still looks as neutered and bland as the previous edition of Gnome 3, with colossally thick window borders and no minimize button, no active icons indicating any sort of useful work you're doing, no shutdown button unless you feel like juggling with the Alt key, fuzzy contrast, bad icons, a depressing gray theme, and a general feel of smartphone retardation. It's all about application centric versus task centric, the new coin phrase that means everyone does their own stuff their own way.
