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: "They don't exist because they aren't GNOME2 applications? What kind of crap is that? LOL"

I wanted to compare Gnome to KDE. I actually took those Gnome1 apps in the rating, but lowered it because they are not updated to Gnome2. If I would not calculate them, Gnome would get an 1.0 instead of the 3.0 it has now on this point. If KDE 3 shipped with all kinds of KDE 1.1 apps, it would also get a much lower rating. And if I would make 5.0 of it, they still don't integrate, which is another point Gnome scores low. And this still doesn't make Gnome available in Dutch, the third point it scores low. But that last one can change if anyone can explain me which LANG code I need to use.

About Galeon: this is indeed a Gnome app, but the embedded browser is Mozilla, which is not Gnome. With KDE, Konqueror uses KHTML, which _is_ Kde. And that is the difference. If you like, compare the scrollbars of Galeon and the Gnome-terminal to see what I mean.
