The main point with the flat design is not that trendy but rather it
is more efficient from the visual point of view because it eliminates
as much visual noises as possible.
Note to everybody: we dont talk about personal preferences here but
visual efficiency, unity and coherence of the desktop. If you comment
please dont say, I like it or I dont like. Those are not arguments.
Flat design sounds nice and clutter-free to me, but I would prefer to keep the visual distinction between the window and the window borders. It's hard to see where to grab the window when you want to drag and don't know about Alt+Drag.
