Why don't you make a feasibility study to see that most of the users

Yet there is a large share of people who want to look professional.
Professional = something looking polished, that developers/designers put
But the most important is for the design to be usable: the large
majority of users to feel comfortable with. When I am playing a fantasy
RPG I am happy with the cursor being shaped as a sword, but when doing
graphics in Inkscape, it *must* be clean and black like Bluecurve (so I
have good contrast with the document).
Maybe an option should be made to customise the desktop according to
personal preferences, thus the 'philosophy dispute' about the design
image could be ended.
Changing the cursor theme is only a few click away for an user willing
to do it, but the out-of-the-box experience must be good, as the large
majority will stay with that.
