A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
GNOME's design has pretty much always* been heavily inspired by Apple's OSes (or more so a caricature of them). GNOME Shell seems to be an obvious exception to that design...
* I hear early GNOME 1 was much more Windows like, while early KDE was more Apple OS like... but I didn't use either till late GNOME 1 / KDE 2.

Early KDE was a lot more like Windows than MacOS. Try comparing some KDE 1.x screenshots with Win9x, for example, and you'll see a lot of resemblance.
