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.

Keyboard Navigation
by Jasenko on Tue 18th Mar 2003 00:14 UTC

If you want to be able to tab to all UI elements like in Windows, just go to the System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Full Keyboard Access, and at the bottom of the window change the radio button from "Text boxes and lists only" to "Any control"

You don't even have to do this to dismiss dialogues, just use command+<first letter of the option> like for example if you want to cancel use command+c

I agree that XP has great keyboard navigation but I also think that OSX keyboard navigation is great but different, and it does need bit of a getting used to.
