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.

>My experience is that Windows XP (with all the updates installed) is more unstable and much less responsive on a >1GHz machine than the first release of KDE3.1 on a 330MHz FreeBSD machine. And bugs? _Please_!
Speaking of the truth, I run WindowsXP Home w/ALL UPDATES on a 2.8GHz P4 machine with 1GB of RAM, and I have it to see it crashes more than 2 times in the past 2 months.
