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.

Integration.

I don't know how can someone *dare* to say KDE is not integrated . As you can see - reading a little bit of the documentation - it is one of the most complete and integrated desktop UI for X, that also integrates with the underlying system (ex: X extensions, CUPS, SANE, lm_sensors, pppd, samba, openlsp, java, ldap, openssl, wine, openSLP, PAM, ...).

I think KDE should got 10 for integration, as it works with a much more set of environments than Windows XP.

You can point to http://www.kde.org/info/requirements/3.1.php and see some of the suported (or required) libraries/drivers/applications.

That's it.
