Is it just me, but does every distro using Gnome look ugly?

http://forums.opensuse.org – I am new to Linux, and I have tested many Linux distros. However, I have yet to find a distro using Gnome that looks pleasing to the eye. They all look like they were more 1990s and like Windows 95 or 98. By contrast, KDE makes Windows Aero look like crud. I hate to say this, but I think I have become a KDE Konvert. KDE 4.4 is pretty stable, (even compared with Windows 7). Seriously, are there any Gnome distros that look nice? I suppose that appearances are secondary to functionality and the Gnome 2 is pretty stable and gets the job done, but still, please make it more pleasing to the eye. (No offense intended if anybody here works on Gnome; after all this is a soap box). (Distributions)
