I wasn't going to engage in this conversation, but you seem to have badly
misunderstood what this point is supposed to mean.

"Form" here means retaining the trappings of the desktop as we've known
it for the past twenty years (menu, system tray, etc.) rather than trying
an experimental paradigm like Gnome 3 or Windows 8.  This is something
Trinity shares (so far, anyway) with a lot of the lightweight desktops.
It's about the elements, not the details of their appearance.
