Is window transparancy the new blinking text?

Installed FreeBSD with KDE 4 into a KVM guest and was overwhelmed by the migraine-inducing combination of gumdrop graphics and transparent windows. There really should be a law against that sort of thing. Maybe a fine of $100 for every transparency or primary color used. To me it’s the desktop equivalent of blinking text and cheesy Flash animation (banning Flash is the only thing I ever agreed on with Steve Jobs). Going to cut this post short now and go take a couple of Ibuprofen.
