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.

IE unfair
by Sean on Mon 17th Mar 2003 23:40 UTC

I think that using IE for OS X to judge anything (as the author did) is unfair. It's like using AOL 2.0 to judge Windows XP (if pre-4.0 versions of AOL could even run on NT based machines). Mac OS X is responsive with applications that are properly coded. Mac OS X is simply experiencing the same growing pains that Windows 95 had and the next major revision of Windows will have (not Longhorn, but the next time that MS makes big changes).
