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.

Hei FUDmaster, you're a moving target. I said that Gnome was like the Amiga, you said there is no comparison (well you said such a comparison was stupid). Now you've to admit I'm right and promptly switch to 'but I would critize the Amiga too if it was now'. Strange coming from someone who said he would take the Amiga API above everything. I'm glad I took the time to reply to your FUD, so everybody can see what arguments you have (none).

Second, I don't compare nautilus to dopus, I compare the ability of gnome and the amiga setup to replace on every level every core element (building block). You're trying to distract from the point a made which are:

Gnome == Amiga approach to DE
KDE == Windows approach to DE

Thirth you're starting to loose ground in the API discussion and promptly switch to application comparison. I could start all over with you about applications (yes I prefer gnome applications) but what is the point. All you whining and gnashing of teeth about API's and libraries boiled down to preference of applications, which you are saying Gnome is lacking, which is very disputable of course.
