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.

Gnome

Also, since there are so many KDE apps, it's really quite easy to get away with running only KDE programs when using it. Based on a fair comparison, I think that the ranking should be KDE, BeOS, Windows (not all apps support theming even MS Office XP), Mac, GNOME.

Why is Gnome on last position? When i use(d) Linux I used Gnome2 mainly because it was more beautiful and it had something called HIG (or human interface guidelines) and nearly all programs for Gnome followed them.
