Not really. Well, again - there's a PR problem. But not a usability problem.
Modern UI's eat lots and lots of CPU cycles to add almost nothing in
added usability. I find Morphic to be careful with the amount of real
espace it takes, smart in the use of color (different types of windows
get different colors - now why is that not in other ui's?), and I even
don't really dislike the old fonts :-).
So, probably it's the old thing again - Squeakers don't have a
problem, nobody has an itch to scratch, and newbies get turned off so
they never get around complaining...
