A review of Ubuntu Gutsy vs. Mac OS Leopard. You can find it here.
It’s a nice and fair review, which is something hard to come by. I have to say it’s one of the best I have seen.
But I do have one problem — mainly on the subject of usability:
First, the article places Linux usage as confusing, since KDE and GNOME offer such different interfaces.
That’s the point! The interfaces are different for a reason; to provide choice. If they were the same, they may as well be one project instead of two. People choose what works best for them. Besides, I thought this review was for Ubuntu, which features GNOME, and not KDE, which would be Kubuntu.
Next, the review suggests that the OpenSUSE versions of the K and GNOME menus are much easier to use than the default menus. While I have used both and they are indeed nice, I have to say that they are heavier and take longer for me to find what I need. At often times, they are not that configurable. Besides, the K menu may not come as a “slab” menu, it has all I need to get around. GNOME’s Applications, Places, System menus are about as simple and fast as it’s going to get, period. In my mind, the default KDE and GNOME are the easiest to use, but that’s just my opinion.
