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.

Roberto, There is really no need to be stupid about the whole thing, she stated her opinions, she is entitled to do that. If you dont like it then dont friggin bother reading the articles. Let me educate you on what a review is. Okay a review is when somebody, in this case Eugenia, uses a product and gives you what she feels is highlights and or faults and the review is based on their user experience--not yours not mine. dude, grow up.

Now as for you mac users out there that so maliciously decide to trash Eugenias review. Im going to say this much. I have never understood mac zealotry, I guess I never will. Its a hunk of plastic, glass and metal. I have never been that passionate about a computer, even when I was a full time mac user working in a mac farm. You guys are scarey and when somebody says windows or Linux is better than the mac, OMG its like " MAC USERS UNITE " You cant stand the thought another OS out there is better than the Mac, just because we dont share your ideas about the Mac doesnt mean we are brain dead it just means, WE DO NOT LIKE THE MAC. Get real folks, a computer is a tool, nothing more, nothing less. I like Linux but my entire wardrobe doesnt contain any Linux t-shirts and I do not have any bumper stickers on my car that says Linux, and I dont have 25 Linux posters decorating my house. Just because I dont like the mac or its GUI dont push your politics off on me, because quite frankly I dont care. I want a platform that is stable, that I can develop on, and one that is simple to administer. Right now SuSE Linux 8.1 Pro and Windows XP fit the bill. I like them, they work and I have fun using the OSes when I use them. I never really liked the old Mac OS and Mac OS X, even though it is based on NeXTStep, is still too much in its infancy for me to trust anything professional to its care. I was raised on NeXTStep,It was my first introduction to a UNIX based OS. I know the internal workings of NeXTStep and of Mac OS X, I just dont like Mac OS X, call me crazy, call me stupid call me a jerk, But if Im all that just because I dont like Mac OS X, I have one word for you guys...PROZAC
