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.

We must have the same version of Windows XP that no one else has, that gives us cause to celebrate. We are special. First Tiger, I have never had a problem with stability in XP as I previously stated it is the most stable and the best version of Windows Microsoft has ever released, I am running XP Pro with Service pack 1, sure I have had application crashes, but I havent had a system crash, well I cant remember the last time I had XP crash. Mac OS X seems to crash more apps than Windows XP does, You wanna talk stability my AMD Athlon 900 mhz with 2 gig of RAM and my 140 gigs of HD, running SuSE 8.1 hs never had an app or system crash and I run that system 24/7 and I use it intensively, daily. My Alpha Workstation running Linux hasnt crashed in forever either. My XP box is a dual 366 mhz Celeron with 256 mb of Ram with a 10 gig HD, and yet Windows is pretty speedy on that machine and I dont find speed or performance lacking. My G4 450 mhz Dual Processor machine crashes at least twice a month with Mac OS X 10.2 It also has 1.5 gig of RAM.
