Editorial Like many of you, I've been watching the big changes in user interfaces over the past few years, trying to make sense of them all. Is there a common explanation for the controversies surrounding the Windows 8 UI and Unity? Where do GNOME 3, KDE, Cinnamon, and MATE fit in? This article offers one view.

Good insight on why Microsoft messed up with Win 8. But as others have commented, the same doesn't apply to KDE 4.0.

Regarding Win 8, KDE 4.0, GNOME 3.0, it's like a mania seized them all. KDE and GNOME have moved on to become good systems for mobile and laptop both, but Win 8 is still in the throes of this change. Sure hope 8.1 gets them through it, would hate to see Win 8.x continue down this destructive path.I think they'll make it.
