What i find helpful with spartan UI is turning off unit frames which saves a huge amount of room, whilst keeping the huge amount of space in the action bars.

I die a little inside whenever I see the Spartan UI

There's nothing wrong with Spartan per se, but yes I find turning off it's default unit frames is definitely needed.Also, I find it pretty necessary to scale down the global UI so there's room to put things either side of the action bars, like this:http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/5166/groupui.jpg

Actually, this UI is fairly easy to fix.Lose the portraits, move the player's and target's bar closer together and move the map to it's default location. Attach a button tray to the map so you get rid of all the buttons Buffs to the left side of the screen.Get rid of the action bar background, move the bars to the middle. Bind your rotation, make the rest of it smaller or fade it out. Attach rarely used skills to OPie rings. Move professions, food, buffs etc to a bar on the right side and fade it out. Make the system buttons small and fade them out too.Fade out Titan Bar aswell.Get Grid or something else of the like, keep it on the right side, so that there's room for omen/recount under it.Move the chat frame to the bottom right part of the screen.Voila, you've got a perfectly functional UI.

Enabling the "widescreen" option in Spartan (even if you're not on a widescreen) will decrease its UI ratio and make it considerably smaller, freeing up some space.

IMO a good alternative to Spartan UI would be nUI, which you can get from various places including http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info9108-nUI.htmlnUI provides a good out of the box revamp of the UI with everything packaged away nicely down the button of the screen, and has a built in HUD which many players will like using. Also has good customization settings which can be easily accessed by using the nUI Config GUI (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info12088-nUIConfigGUI.html)

@Hedwinkle: Spartan UI is fine depending on your screen size. I, for example, am currently using a monitor that has a native resolution of 1024x768 (my standard monitor broke) I wouldn't dare use Spartan UI on it, it'd just be bloody stupid.But, on my standard 22" monitor which has a resolution of 1680x1050 (widescreen) I would be able to use such addons.
