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.

Woooow you use a lot of words without answering me! But okay.

Listen, I've used the Amiga form 1986 till my 4000 broke in 1998 as only desktop at home and I don't mean only playing games with. And yes I still link the amiga gui with Gnome. I've evaluated qt and gtk+ as widget set for our in-house build and used Medical Image Manipulation applications and frontends. I have choosen for gtk+ two years before SUN adapted Gnome (we used solaris machines back then, running a KDE desktop). To call people who support gnome children shows who is really the kid in here, also to call everybody who disagrees with you stupid is really childish too.

What really amazes me is that your claiming to be knowlegdable about the structure of KDE and Gnome and fight the inclusion of building blocks that are being used by Gnome into KDE with the claim that this would destroy the integration of KDE. You (if your a that knowlegdable) and I know that the inclusion of those building blocks will not be visible to the developers that use the KDE API for creating applications. Come with real argument instead of the FUD you're spreading. Calling something retarted and stupid doesn't make it so.

First you attacked gconf, now you're attacking every single library that has the faintest connection with Gnome. The mask has fallen of, you're the only one who doesn't see it.
