Looks like a cut-down version of Gnome to me.

Edit: Oh, it is a cut down version of gnome.

Yes those business interfaces are SOOOO complex, the slightest change in icon or menu placement can send even the most hardened users into months of therapy.

Perhaps 'Project Mad Hatter' isn't the most suitable name for such a conservative approach?
