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.

OS X mouse buttons

Yikes - this guy doesn't know a thing or one.

I use a three button wheeled mouse on my old 333Mfz iMac and it wroks great. Left/Right/scroll wheel cum middle button. OS X supports right button clicks just fine and most OS X programs have it implemented.

The single button has consistently been found to be less confusing to newbies, whereas two or three button mouses are supported by 3rd party USB devices.
