The UI for sure can be improvrd, but calling it an unfinished experiment is ...well not true. Imho the panels look much better than in 2.4x. On normal full hd widescreen monitors its great.

I agree with everything said. Blender interface currently looks
unfinished and more as a testing field for different 3D tools. Someone
has had nice idea what to do with but it looks like he lost that idea
and now UI floats as unfinished experiment.
