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.

>Gnome gets a 6.5 out of 10 for having poor icons???

Of course not. But it ain't Miss World either [overall].

>And why BeOS is included is beyond me. A desktop that doesn't run on modern hardware

You are wrong. BeOS Max Edition runs *everywhere* and the few problems with compatibility are all straighten out with YellowTAB's Zeta, which is the NEW BeOS coming out in a FEW weeks! BeOS is far from dead. Be, Inc's BeOS is dead, but not Zeta. Also, I explain very well WHY BEOS is included. Read the first page again.

> And why are you complaining about Kicker not being able to resize like the Dock? It does do this, and I've been using this feature since 2.x, I believe.

Not what I am asking, no. The taskbar does NOT resize when more programs are get opened.
