EVALUATION OF SUGAR PART TWO: USER INTERFACE

Complete a variety of labelled screenshots which illustrate the differences between these user interfaces.

Windows (WIMP – windows, icons, menus, pointers – as in MSOffice 2003)















Windows (ribbons, contextual tabs, galleries – as in MSOffice 2007)















Sugar (Frame replaces menubar, Journal replaces file system hierarchy, Community – didn’t work for us,)














Linux command line (similar to DOS)














My first preference is Windows (ribbons, contextual tabs, galleries – as in MSOffice 2007) because it is the one I am most familiar  with and find the easier to use.My second preference is Windows (WIMP – windows, icons, menus, pointers – as in MSOffice 2003) even thought there really isn't much of a difference overall between them I like the graphics  on the 2007 one better.My third preference is
Linux command line (similar to DOS) because I use Ubuntu at home and I find terminal easy to use if i want to customize Ubuntu .My forth preference is
Sugar (Frame replaces menubar, Journal replaces file system hierarchy, Community because it is my least favorite I don't like the design of it and constant freezing when you open more then 2 tabs.I found out that it is because the memory is not powerful enough to support more then a couple of tabs without freezing that's why it is my least favorite.
