I commute on steep trails (on the way down), and I loose a lot of studs on the rocks. Since I have 1000m of altitude difference, there's either too much snow on top, or too many rocks at the bottom. Schwalbe sells a kit to put studs back inside the tire and I use it extensively !

I do miss not having an obvious time to check email, read the news, read a magazine or book etc

Yeah, but you can purchase open headphones with which to listen to the radio (or music) while you bike. The 'open' part is important as you can still hear your surroundings with those, while you can't with 'closed' headphones and it's dangerous to bike deaf. I recommend the Jabra Sport.

To me beauty is an hindrance and gets in the way. I don't want bouncing icon or transparent windows or hidden menu bars or hidden keyboard shortcuts. It's distracting and make things hard to read. Keep things clear and functional, and yes, I agree with GP, KDE is currently the best for that. For instance [F4] in Dolphin beats any plurely graphical file manager all the way and then some.

According to all the latest reports, there was no truth in any of the earlier reports.
