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.

It is based on LONG TERM usage. Do you have a specific benchmark that runs on ALL of these platforms and measures EXACTLY the above? NO, there isn't such a benchmark. Therefore, it can't be anything else but write down the experience of long term usage and evaluate the lot.
