You were probably looking at KDE.  I personally don't care for it at all
(looks toooo much like windows and isn't very lean on the RAM).  The KDE2
betas are nicer looking, but nothing drastic enough to make me want to use
it.  They are also in a pretty dynamic state of flux (some things are
broken currently).  Helix (gnome) is the nicest desktop environment in my
opinion.  As stable as KDE was, and much nicer looking, even compared to
the kde2 betas.  But then again I really prefer just to run WindowMaker or
Blackbox or........ isn't choice nice :-).
