The next thing you will see is that apps for Windows will sport brownish colors (just like the best-selling Zune), a color MS already has experience with.
Unfortunately, there are other things beside leather that are brown.
On a more serious note, leather is also pretty common on the desktop. I have several leather gadgets lying in my closet that were given to me as Christmas presents, that I should have used on my desk: a calender stand, an agenda cover, cylindrical pen holders, etc., but never did.
