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.

Yes Windows XP is way more stable than OS X, Im not going to say its more stable than Linux, but yes much more stable than OS X, My XP machine is going almost 6 months with no unintentional reboot, sure I have app crashes and all I do is fire up that application again, and I keep working. Save your Apple spewing politics for people that actually care to hear stuff like that, In the old days I could say the mac was more user friendly, but today the ease of use in Windows XP has surpassed that of the Mac. Macs have nothing else left, everything that was a concievable reason for choosing the Mac, the PC does now, sometimes even better than what Apple has to offer. Save your politics, but let me ask you something, Apple has its switch ads and they claim so many people left the PC, more than half those ads are fake by the way, I wonder tho how many people actually left the Mac and bought a PC? I think the number is more than Apple is willing to admit. Because with people actually buying the Mac, marketshare should be increasing instead of decreasing...
