At least Gnome is not just another Windows 95 look-alike 10 years on
On what evidence is this based?
it does look somewhat unique
Like a Mac with a CDE theme. OK.
and new users can be trained to use it in 10 minutes or less.
Considering that these users will probably have used Windows and they will be somewhat confused about the right/left button ordering amongst other things, it really depends on what you're training them to do.
Linus must be more dissatisfied with KDE than he lets on, or he would not be spending so much time berating the Gnome developers that they do not suit his own personal taste.
I suggest you read the thread and see what it's actually about rather than spiralling into denial.
