As far as I know, you can also use OSC in Supercollider.

My 2 cents on PD's gui: I agree that the present gui is minimalistic, 
but that should maybe be seen as a plus. I would give priority to pd 
evolving into a full-featured audio/graphics/video processing 
environment, rather that striving to look cool. Tcl/tl is very portable 
and feels responsive enough to me even on my old laptop (Pentium 133) 
which is not really the best system for realtime audio. I cannot say 
the same about wxWindows. On the other hand, I would welcome basic 
preference options for things like background and font colors. On OS X, 
I tend to work with pd with my display set to black and white and my 
gamma reversed (this basically gives me a white-on-black look and 
reduces the eye-strain due to the monitor's light beam). You can get 
access to that via the Universal Access preference pane or by using the 
shortcut CTRL-ALT-APPLE-8  and setting your display to 256 colors.
