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.

From a GAMER's point of view

--Windows-the king of games. Compatible with any new games. Console games are ported to Windows first ALMOST all times.
--MacOSX-pfffttt.... sure you can play recent titles on that, BUT who likes FEWER new games and who likes to see having to wait an additrional 3-5 months to wait until the mac port of the new game is finished?
--BeOS-heh, very few recent titles are on that platform
--LINUX(KDE/GNOME)-Yes you can play PORTED titles OR play recent games under WineX. But what now? SOME of recent titles works in WineX, but they will be SLLOOOWWWW. One of my game is soldier of fortune 2. With the SAME setting and playing on the SAME map, I get a 20-40FPS(frame per secend) DECREASE IN WINEX! Note that my normal FPS is about 125FPS in an empty map (System: p4 2.8, 1gb ram, geforce ti 4600)
