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.

<<Assuming you don't care to be bankrolling convicted criminal enterprise. Admittedly MS is everywhere (as are Fords or Chevys,) but when BMWs are *free* it is just unbelievable that people can suggest that the Ford looks better or handles better. It just doesn't. I mean not even. ROFL! >>

Yes George... I couldn't agree with you more. This Eugenia/XP phenomenon may be a result of TellyTubbism. It may be a tellytubbyophiliac reaction to the first background image one is presented after installing XP. All that's missing is the mound, the wabbits anf the little guys with TVs embedded in their stomachs. This syndrome affects parents who are obliged to watch the Telly Tubbies with their kids. After awhile everything starts to ressemble that Windows background, the mind "dumbs-down" to the level of a child's. That explains why parents who have children who watch the Telly Tubbies like Windows, and are even willing to hypocritically support a criminal organisation that lies, frauds, bribes, threatens, and subjects the weak to its whims.
