That's a tough call. If the reader has never encountered the terms KDE
or GNOME before, the word 'called' removes some ambiguity. If
anything, I'd say that 'look and feel to linux' would be better
expressed as 'look and feel for linux' because the former suggests
something that's meant to be an alternative to Linux itself.

All of this gets down to the point I really want to make though. The
site is so good now that the necessary changes are so minor and so
subjective that I reckon Chris ought to do it as he sees fit. There's
no point in over analysing it.

The site looks great.
