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.

REVIEW BY PREFERENCE
by JEFFERY on Tue 18th Mar 2003 05:19 UTC

This review seems driven by preference instead of function. Anyone used to a Windoze interface would pick Windoze as an interface of choice. Having used Windoze until about a year ago, I would have agreed. However after using KDE for the last year, I like its custom-izability. Out of the box Windoze is easier. For tweaking, KDE is it. Women like things that just work. Men like things to work with.
