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.

I don't see how on earth you could come up with some conclusion that just because a library isn't programmed in C++ that it isn't worth your while. C++ is classically bloated, and you do pay for the extra overhead of "object orientation". I've had to program using the windows whatever libraries, it is the most confusing library I've ever seen; I'll even take Qt over Windows. GTK+ does have an object hierarchy unless you are extremly blind, and has extremly good bindings for Objective-C. My only bitch about Qt is the liscensing. Your damned right that Cocoa being a good library. Your article is completly biased imho and it's a shame that you ever had the gaull to post it.
