Graphics, User Interfaces "The best open source applications and operating systems are more usable now than they were then. But this is largely from slow incremental improvements, and low-level competition between projects and distributors. Major problems with the design process itself remain largely unfixed." Personal Note: I am not sure how many people feel that Free Software has poor usability. As far as the desktop environment, I find most of linux window managers to be the more user-friendly than Windows and OS X.

I have to agree! I can't live without kwin anymore. Multiple desktops, always on top/on all desktops/... enforcements, per window/per application enforcements of settings etc. Move/resize windows with alt+left/right mouse button (no need to have the window decoration inside the desktop). etc. etc. I love it.
