I was thinking the same thing.
To me, it seems like the dev teams are looking to , ahem, modernize the look of the Linux desktop.
Unfortunately, I can see some of them going down the same path as the Windows or OSX UI... alot of flashy pretty shiny.
The strange thing is that even though I don't prefer the new look of Gnome or KDE, the layout might actually be more comfortable to some of those looking to switch over.

The good old days are gone for good... personally I dislike too much bling, but if there is a bit of "shiny" and it's tasteful shiny I can live with it... mac osx style docks, netbook/tablet/smartphone style UIs, or any kind of huge panel thing with massive buttons for that matter, get a huge no from me. KDE and Xfce haven't introduced any crap like that and allow the user a lot of flexibility, so they get my vote for now.

Is the mint style menu available to Red Hat based distro's or at least the source to compile it??
What distro r u using elija?

Linux Mint Debian Edition with XFCE. Mint Menu is written in Python so you should be able to install it. The code might need a bit of tweaking in places, for running things as root and so on.

I have three version of Kubuntu installed at present, 11.04, 11.10 and 12.04 (pre-alpha).
Over the past few weeks I've installed and used for day or two the latest version of the following:-
Ubuntu with Gnome Shell and Unity
They all have their good points but I keep coming back to Kubuntu and KDE 4.7.3. I find Kubuntu to be the most stable with the best applications. I just couldn't get along with Gnome Shell and Unity kept crashing leaving me without a top panel and launcher. I also didn't like the way it liked to open all applications maximised. I'm sure a lot of the bugs will be fixed when the next version is released though.

I've never quite liked KDE, can live with, but don't care for gnome 3, and have never tried enlighten. When my Ubuntu 10.04 is no longer supported, I guess I will switch to Lubuntu. Bling doesn't impress me, I want function not flashing lights eye candy.Registered Linux user #526930

Enlightenment is good, but i rarely see it compiled in an OS to just install like the others. Which makes it a bit more of a hassle to get working! they have like 10 tarballs you need before you can compile it!
