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.

I can assure you, it is not. I am a user of all these systems for years and I give them credit only when they deserve it.

>BeOS scores right after OS X???? Give me a break. BeOS widgets are AWFUL

First of all, here we compare BeOS Zeta, not BeOS 5. And even with Zeta/Dano's widget set, BeOS scores WORSE in that "look and feel" department than OSX, as you also feel appropriate.
But the *final rating* is a SUM of a LOT of different things, not just how things are looking to your eyes. Please re-read carefully the article.
