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.

Re: Keyboard

Escape to cancel and command first letter of any other option (fer instance, command-d for "Don't Save"). Piece o' cake..

Hmm, very good thing. I liked this in windows because since MS started to hide these usefull indicators by default in Win2000 more and more programmer's "forget" about them completetly in dialog boxes ;)

But how is this handled in MacOSX if 2 options start with the same letter? And is it possible to *fully* control the Mac with the keyboard only? This means some way to maximize/minimize windows, move windows, switch between tabs in option dialogs, etc....?
