Because kde, osx and now even vista people like it that way :).
I haven't seen a glossy sheet of paper, but I did see glossy plastic
folders of various colors. Even the old grey folder has a glossy
refrection if look closely. It's not something I like, it's quite
overused, but Tango is about finding common ground between styles and if
everybody leans towards colorful glossy folders...
In addition, folders are highly likely to be customized by vendor. IF
you prefer the older folders you can do something similar. Check out
0.4.0, take the folders and create a theme with only the folders,
inheriting from Tango.
