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.

Consistency with gnome apps
by Trip on Tue 18th Mar 2003 05:31 UTC

GTK/Gnome apps are being updated for GTK2 and as such are expected to be inconsistent during this transision. Many of the latest stable builds for the apps mentioned that were inconsistent (Abiword, gnumeric, Gnucash) all have CVS versions with GTK2 being implemented and should be in the next major releases. Also dragging office apps into these DE comparisons isn't really fair either. You could do a whole other article comparing them (Gnome Office, KOffice, OpenOffice, MSOffice). Does Mac even have its own office suite? Or is it just praying that MS or OO port their suites to their platform?
