Graphics, User Interfaces So many operating systems and so many graphical desktop environments... This article is a comparison of the UI and usability of several Desktop Environments (DEs), that have been widely used, admired and reviled: Windows XP Luna, BeOS 6 (Dano/Zeta), Mac OS X Aqua and Unix's KDE and Gnome. Read on which one got our best score on our long term test and usage.

Speed of XP
by Brandon on Mon 17th Mar 2003 23:29 UTC

I don't know if I agree with the speed of XP. I use it on an Athlon XP PC, and it can feel quite sluggish. While OS X on my 600 MHz G3 iMac was sluggish also, they are about the same, and XP can be even less responive with mulitple apps running. I'd say both are more responsive than KDE, but I 've found Gnome 2 to be the feel the fastest, and I haven't used BeOS.
