I must admit that I still think that the original RISC OS 2 desktop was better than any of the newer versions. I kept my desktop in 2D with system font, long after RISC OS 3.7 came out. For RISC OS 4, I always tried to minimise the pointless new visual possibilities. I think far too much time and effort goes into flashy cosmetic gimicks, not just in RISC OS, but in other desktops as well.
