 Comparisons

Score 50%

OK, last week we compared that thing, that is named an OS by an obscure monopolist (http://www.kde-look.org/poll/index.php?poll=61). This week the turn goes to Mac OS X to be messed against KDE/Linux before we turn it around and start to discuss, where KDE/Linux is better (well, in fact, where it is mostly better since you just have one option ;-) ).

So stay tuned for the next polls...

But first I would like to poll, how you like 3.2 RC1. So if you want to participate in the next poll, go out, grab the sources and install that masterpiece.


...my wife complained that I do not pay attention...or something like that...

I searched but I can't see where Mac OS X is better in the choices.

I think Mac OS X is only better in its support of real transparency :)
For the rest, Linux owns Mac OS X !!!

Agreed.

I didn't vote because I couldn't find where MacOS X is better than Linux.

Don't be such a fanatic, even a total linux geek (like myself) has to admit, that the number of ported applications for Mac OS X is considerably higher, that that of Linux. Take photoshop for example ;)

I think I'll never understand why so many people thing that OS X has a better look&feel and is easier to use that Linux/KDE. I tried OS X and I see no advantages. Maybe it just has something to do with a certain "myth" of MacOS.

One thing that Linux/KDE really needs compared to OS X are professional applications from the big commercial software companies out there.

Right on. I want to be able to capture, edit and process audio, midi, and video on my Linux box. It's a shame I can't do it. Here's where commercial software comes in to play. Most of the people who have multimedia production skills are not programmers and most programmers don't know much about how to produce something that looks nice (with exceptions of course).

And I say that as a person who tries to use OSS whenever possible.

 Integrated Apps

 
 by thoreau on: Jan 26 2004
 
Score 50%

I think the iTools of iMovie, iPhoto, iDVD, iTunes are absolutely top-notch. Every KDE developer should try out Mac OS X for a month or so to get some fresh idea of just how far you can take integration.

My wife was a long-time Windows/Linux(KDE) user and has found her Mac (she does photography) to be simply one of the best business tools she has ever used. There was a premium price for that, but I must say that there are things about Mac OS X that I really envy.

If we as a community could bring that level of experience to computer users, it would truly be amazing.

It includes ONE app per purpose, but those apps really are top-notch and integrated together VERY VERY VERY well.

Like I said, desktop developers should at least TRY it for a month (if they have a way) just to shake out some fresh ideas on how to approach a completely integrated desktop solution.


Shameless plug - My wife's photography website is at http://www.fyphoto.com :)

I am a Mac fan, but none of these applies. the only advantage of Mac i can see, is the fact is well known.

KDE is a lot better than Mac, IMHO.
so i think this poll miss an option, none or others, or I don't know.

Apple hardware are awesome, though.

Actually, KDE misses something like Exposé. That's why I voted for "Features".

And the Mac control panel looks much nicer than KControl...

Hardly, the Mac cp is a mess with icons all over the place. It's about as modernised as the Windows 3.x one was.

 what about quartz

 
 by elmo on: Jan 28 2004
 
Score 50%

i think things like quartz and quartz extreme are far more advanced than anything linux has to offer, although i am not a mac-user (using linux). Also OSX doesn't offer 1001 programms for the same job, they usually have one app and that is really well designed as well as integrated with other apps - and things tend to work out of the box without too much fiddling to do. So far i've never heard anybody complain, who owns a mac. However i do not like the aqua/panther look, i prefer flat themes. Still - i think my next laptop will be an ibook - if ever i will be able to afford one that is

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
