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.

shit, forgot to mention...

how unreadable the text on desktop icons gets in windows if you pick the wrong deskop image.

how utterly nasty the windows file organization is... any unix is so muchcleaner.

how windows hides everything from you, so you never know what the fuck is going on.

how windows requires a security update every two days.

how much better office works on a mac.

how java doesn't work in windows until you install it yourself.

how half the time uninstalling software in windows doesn't work.

shit, drag-and-drop, folder-less installation of most software should be reason enough to ditch windows for OS X.

how OS X aliases actually work properly, whereas windows shortcuts are just clutter... then again, the file system is so well organized in OS X that I haven't needed to use any aliases.
