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 somehow expected that you replied with such a bad excuse.

I must admit that I made a mistake with 3/4 of the applications because I was in the wrong assumption that GNUCash is GTK+ only (Never used that app). This came to the conclusion and sum that 1/2 of the applications you mentioned are NOT GNOME related and therefore pure GTK+ apps. I for my own differ this otherwise we need to add all QT apps to be KDE apps as well (but they are not). There is a big underlaying difference of GNOME vs. GTK+ apps. E.g. not using the same Configuration system, not using the same HIG, not using the same Dialogs, not using the same framework such as gnome-vfs and other things. You liked to show me and others wrong and now you come up with such a crappy excuse. Basically worthless the trouble of conversation. Regardless of the fact what apps are GNOME or GTK+ the problems here are that all these applications act differently, don't work seamless integrated and so on. They are all individual apps. So you can't compare that with the applications that a pure KDE system offers. The counterparts found on KDE are through and through KDE apps, starting from using KParts, Same object Toolbars, same object Fileselector and so on.

Some lines later you expressed that GALEON2 (or Epiphany) is a full worthy GNOME application. This is true but only for Galeon 2 and Epiphany. This is not valid anymore for the embedded component which requires Mozilla therefore shows XUL in your rendering Window.

Sorry but you have NO legitimate knowledge and throw only pieces of junk into this round and basically disqualifies your argumentations.

I understand (we all do) that you like to defend your favourite Desktop Environment which is obviously GNOME but please stop throwing wrong informations into this round. Look, even when I hype KDE now then this doesn't mean that I am illiterate what GNOME concerns. I worked longer with GNOME, supplied more patches to GNOME and wrote more own things GNOME related than you. So please stop trying to fool me, you need to wake up earlier for this.
