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'll grant you this that it did take some time to configure my KDE desktop to my exact needs and preferences. But now that that is done I'll never go back. As I spend at least 5 hours a day on computers investing a day on a desktop setup exactly for my needs was no big deal.

Bugs in KDE and text based configuration - Eugenia go get a good distribution like SuSE and make sure your hardware is supported. I haven't had these problems.
