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.

@oGALAXYo: About gconf
by makkus on Wed 19th Mar 2003 14:09 UTC

Every introduction of new technology has his problems. Gconf is no acception. This happens in every DE, well except KDE and Windows which always work perfect in the current setup and the problems ly in the past in a version number lower then the current (look up in google dcop in KDE 2.x, worked flawlessy when KDE 2.x was current and had a lot of problems when KDE 2.x was old and not the current version).

But tell me I'm running a gnome only DE (USE=-arts -kde in gentoo if this says something to you). Which application (who are not extremely apha) have trouble with there schema'sand gconf? Because the only applications crashing on a regular basis on me at the moment are the beta ones like epiphany and totem and not on gconf. I thought I kept up with all the newest in Gnome but if I've to believe you, I miss a whole lot of applications (the ones crashing on gconf or with gconf schema problems).
