More or less roughly scanning through this whole debate, one can observe a vast majority of contributors against this change of the UI with at least plausible arguments and illustrations. They frequently state to represent other (less experienced) users. On the other side are a few very explicit contributors with basicly three arguments pro: distinction from other OS's, marketing aspects and usability improvements. They make it themselves very hard by just discussing the opponents arguments as inferior instead of making their own arguments more plausible for benefitting the mass. At a side-line there is the Ubuntu leader, watching and waiting and sometimes throwing minor bones into the crowd.
