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 agree that its good to spark viewpoints, but I still would have preferred a more objective review. Using terms like definative and clear bias towards Windows is just gonna spark flame wars and bring out the trolls. Its clear that KDE and Gnome didnt get the time of day in this review, and that is really sad and disappointing. Especially when its the Windows and OSX UI that are generally static or should I say stagnet. Like I said earlier, since 95 MS has continued to polish the UI turd. In just 2 short years, KDE and Gnome have made major improvements to get to the good solid point theyre at now, and just wait and see what they have in store over the next 2 years of improvements while XP and OSX are still eating the same dogfood.
