Eh? KDE is nothing like Windows 3.11, not even remotely. I'm assuming by 'completely new design' you mean the Unity interface used by Ubuntu? Or Gnome 3 (which seems to be drawing much hate). Gnome 1 was pretty similar in layout to KDE 1/2 - even Gnome 2 was similar in that way if I recall correctly, never really used Gnome much.

This was one of the things I REALLY felt lacking about DOS's CLI compared to the Beeb when I moved from a 128K BBC Master to a 286 PC back in 1991 - the ability to copy any character on the screen was just so intuitive - DOS felt clunky by comparison (it still does!). I still have the Beeb in the loft while the 286 was long since consigned to the PC graveyard in the sky...
