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.

This is a really biased article. Methodology is pretty awful.

BeOS scores right after OS X???? Give me a break. BeOS widgets are AWFUL. They don't follow _any_ of the UI methodologies.

It should have been done like this: http://www.xvsxp.com/

Please, next time consult this very basic article when judging UI: http://www.asktog.com/basics/firstPrinciples.html

MacOS X pretty much wipes the floor with all other UIs. I wish I had some cash to buy a Mac for home.
