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.

An interesting review :)

A nice review, indeed. Instead of trolling like Petreley did, she took the time to test and play with stuff.
Only some opinions...
1) IE for MacOS Classic/X sucks, but sucks a lot in every conceivable way, probably the worst browser around. Unfortunately for Apple Safari is still not ready for prime time.
2) Konqueror is TOO confusing! Its easy to lose myself with all-oh-those loads of features and buttons and all of this.
3) Nautilus still sucks, but nowadays fortunately is near the unsuckiness state.
4) If you take out the Microsoft history and all those Microsoft-sponsored spyware, XP is a good system, EXCEPT for those horrid Luna colors.
5) Troll people sucks. :-)

And for those who havent seen enough trolling: http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=03/03/18/0040211&mode=nocomment&...
