I despise that interface on my Xbox.
My father-in-law and other in-laws are the biggest Mac fans on the planet, and they're loudly complaining about Lion. I'm thinking Apple will back down.

I always just used Sawmill as my window manager (which ended up being the primary WM for Gnome, but the vanilla version of it is better---lightning fast and extremely customisable),
That's the funny thing. I don't know many people that like how the XBox interface works. They live with it, because it is cheaper to game on one than a PC and you don't have to sit at your desk like a nerd, but it's a nightmare GUI. I don't know what possessed MS to think it would be a good idea to port that concept to PCs.
I tend to feel the same on most days. I think a lot of the push toward making Lion more like an iPad came from Jobs, and for a while that shadow will linger, but Mountain Lion hasn't made any moves toward reducing the desktop experience. The only gripe I have with it is GateKeeper.
