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.

Seriously, seriously, how can Euginia put Win XP above Mac OS X? I mean...seriously?!

Mac OS X mops the floor with Windows. As many people have said, the dialogs in Win XP blow. Win XP, IMHO, looks like ass. And WinXP on _my_ machine is slower than Mac OS X on my iBook. And, may I point out, Mac OS X is running on a 600mhz machine. Win XP is on a 1.6ghz machine.

Windows UI is also often inconsistant (Dialog boxes, again...). Also, why does skinning matter? Hello, you seem to be constantly harping how "It's not included in the OS!". SKINNING ISN'T INCLUDED! It's an _addition_!

Ack, this article wreaks.
