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.

Well I need to agree to Roberto here from the technical standpoint he is absolutely right. KDE has deserved some higher points than these given to it. I wonder why she didn't made use of the explainations of the bottom layer things that I explained nearly in detail in various threads here. These should be a good point to have a look at. Personally I would have placed the Desktops that way

1) WindowsXP
2) MacOSX

Because they contain a whole OS and not just the DE

3) KDE
4) BeOS

No offense but I think BeOS is not as good as Desktop as KDE because KDE offers functionality that bombs out WindowsXP in various places.

5) GNOME

GNOME as last place is ok imo. It reflects the reality.
