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.

aitvo - I dont use anti-virus sh*t on windows
by tty on Tue 18th Mar 2003 14:19 UTC

with NTFS and a user account - limited in xp's term and non-root in *nix world - I don't need to have too much of a concern for virus

IE and stript ??? scripting is disabled in my IE except for a few trusted sites.

In fact, I never used any anti-virus software on a daily basis even on win9x - since I dont run untrusted programs/activeXes and script is generally not allowed in IE and OE and file sharing is only started when I need it.

Combined, these steps let even win9x ran on my computers
much more stable than X with any apps more sophiscated than an xterm.
