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.

KDE has DCop
KDE has aRts and KParts audio and video subsystem
KDE is completely accessable from keyboard.. or mouse.. all its widgets were designed this way (unlike Mac)
KDE is multithreaded and has been for years (Even 98 is multithreaded yet OSX finder only just got there)
KDE dosent need 2 processors just to go at a resonable speed (p2 200 works great at work with it)
KDE supports remote desktop all the way up to terminal server systems.
KDE is Open Source so everyone can make it better
KDE runs Console apps, Motif apps and more, almost always without fail
X11 has Mesa.
