Motif is nothing, ugly is defined by the athena or xaw widget sets. Aaack! It's hideous, run for the hills! :) I totally agree with your statements about themability, the combination of window manager and GTK themes allows a lot of flexibility, though it can take a while to find something you really like. (I know I have trouble actually settling on a look for any appreciable length of time.)
However, I think this article wasn't very good, it seemed to be a little too much hype, with a lot of features thrown around casually that could take months to implement correctly. I also got the impression that the authour of the article has never actually used GNOME or KDE, as she seems to point out all these "new" things that Nautilus can do that GNOME has always had the capability for.
Regardless, I still can't wait for Nautilius to get usable so I can try it.
