Works pretty well too, as a "full" type desktop - I set it up on my brother's Aspire One a while back and he doesn't seem to be having any issues so far.
I had to install a support daemon to stop the fan running at full tilt and a couple of other minor tweaks, but it's all on the website with instructions and install links - very simple.
If Apple & Google are so close
Why did they bother releasing Google Desktop for the Mac? Didn't they know that a better system was already built into the OS?

Re. Not spherical
Well, the "surfaces" of the carbon atoms in a buckyball are a pretty tight fit (ball and stick models just show what is connected where - a representation such as http://www.3dchem.com/imagesofmolecules/c60a.jpg is more accurate for showing the shape).

It'll probably just miss the point; Apple doesn't just make things pretty for the hell of it - the reason Aqua is so good that, although shiny enough to impress newbies, functionality is still what comes first. (excluding recent cockups with Leopard's menu bar & standard dock obviously - don't know what they were smoking when that happened).
We're going to end up with another Aero here aren't we?
