Mac OS X An interesting article has been making its way around the internet the past few days, titled "Top 10 Usability Highs Of Mac OS". Mac OS X indeed does some things very, very right, just like many other operating systems and graphical environments do some things very, very right. The issue with the list of the article in question is that many of the items on the list are not exactly examples of "Usability Highs" at all.

I haven't yet used KDE 4.1 for more than a few minutes but I know something about Debian unstable:

Don't use it for a month when they do a major KDE (or GNOME for that matter) upgrade. I've lived through a few of them (btw. gcc upgrades are just as bad for KDE as gcc breaks their ABI every second release) and it always takes some time until the packages become usable again.

If Debian's currently moving KDE4 into unstable, now is a good time to expand your horizon. Try Gnome or Xfce or fluxbox or e16/e17. Then in mid-September look if the KDE 4.1 packages are no longer broken.

I've got GNOME installed of course, along with GNUstep and haven't checked out the latest Xfce, though it's always a very nice lightweight DE.

Enlightenment is also something I will check out.
