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.

Gnome

First Gnome doesn't have a menu-editor. But you can edit the menus.
1. Start-here (what does it say? Right!!!)->applications, here you can add and remove links to applications (what does it say? Right!!!). The menu is called applications, what can you find there? Right, the same applications.
2. Right click in the application menu, go to entire menu and here you can add a new link to the menu.

You expect a menu-editor, first they complain that every DE wants to look and funtion like Windows XP, but then they expect it to look and function like windows XP. Double standards.

Your dislike of GTK+ and C makes your judgement of Gnome very biased. The development-tool agnostic nature of gtk+ is in mine opinion more a strenght then a weakeness. What is you dislike of gtkmm?
