Free software and good user interfaces

This was a new post on Slashdot.  I thought people might like to read another's thoughts on UI design/implementation in the Free Software world.  I myself have found that KDE 3.0 and the upcoming Gnome 2.0 both have very good UI design and function well.  KDE has better copy/cut/paste functions that translate across 99% of KDE apps.  But I still personally prefer the Gnome UI.  For me it looks, feels and is more inlined to my thinking. Here is the link to the article http://www106.pair.com/rhp/free-software-ui.html and also a discussion on Advogato http://advogato.com/article/462.html
