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.

"Dunno what ver of linux u guys are using but IE on windows sure cains netscrape on unix."

Nobody uses Netscape. Mozilla maybe, but not Netscape. And what do you mean "cains"? Do you mean IE is better, or faster or more secure? IE is not better. Mozilla and others render websites correctly and it renders them faster. And don't even get me started on security!

Opera is also miles ahead of IE. For all intents and purposes, IE is pretty mediocre browser.

IE might start faster but that's because parts of it is loaded when Windows starts. But there are lightweight alternatives on Linux that load just as fast (like Galeon or Phoenix). And slightly tweaked KDE/Konqueror loads instantly.
