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.

Excuse me but you should do some homework. You said:

GNOME is similar to AMIGA because of C

I said GNOME is more directing into OSX (from look than Amiga) and then you said:

OSX is based on objective C therefore is not compareable to GNOME which is C therefore similar to Amiga.

But you forget that LARGE parts of Kickstart and Workbench (refering to 3.1 here) are written in Assembly language and assembled on a Unix Mainframe. Due the time I can't remember which parts are Assembly but I have parts of the original Kickstart sourcecode somewhere on my archives and can for sure tell that Exec is 100% pure MC680x0 Assembly.

Nice day!
