It was done to meet the demands/tastes of the main user group, who are using vista, or are on their way to using it.

It's, um, not very attractive to many, but if it helps take humans off the IE/Win horse, then it pays off, or such is the hope.

There is of course no reason to not customize it to tailor one's own wishes, even on systems where "native skin" doesn't really mean anything e.g.:

Ultimately, it's the core rendering engine that matters to many, and 9.2x is far behind 9.5 in that regard...
