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'm sorry, but as far as I am concerned any window system
that REQUIRED me to MANUALLY SUPERVISE keeping my mouse
pointer within the scrollbar slider while I move it, and
WHICH SCREWS UP IF IT SLIPS OUT deserves a failing grade
in the usability department.

Rating Windows XP at 9 on usability is BULLSHIT on just
this ground by itself !!
