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 sometimes get the feeling that eugenia is a bit overconfident about her UI expertise.. The truth is, she's way more qualified than most of us who comment here-- this article has proven to be especially objective--
and worth reading.
Hopefully my favorite environment (Gnome) can take care of some of the things she mentions.

On a side note, I've gotten hooked on bluecurve... but I'm amazed and intrigued kde can be adjusted to look this clean! :
