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.

Eugenia XP?---Not!

Under X11, and in this order, are four alternatives far superior to XP: IceWM, Xfce, WindowMaker, Blackbox.... Each of them is more than three times as fast. The fact that you find the XP interface superior to either the Gnome or the KDE environments is not a testamony to the superiority of XP, but rather a sign of the degeneration of the others to the point of lumbering unuseability, especially in Gnome's case, and the incompetence of Distro developers when it comes to consistent integration.

I simply cannot believe that anyone with your knowledge of Operating systems would choose XP as the "best" in anything. Well, as they say, we all create or own private helll, and I must say, you are welcomed to yours. But this may have an upside for you. Now maybe you can sell some AD space to the convicted monopolist.
