Looking at and 
similar, there are categories Interface:desktop-enhancement and 
Interface:frontend, but no 'OS interface' category as such. 

Such category (or an equivalent) should list the things which face the user 
running a free operating system such as a GNU/Linux distribution or Replicant. 
Examples include the CDE linked above, Gnome, Xfce, LXQT, fluxbox (this is not 
a full DE, maybe more like a window manager or something basic), Harmattan (the 
desktop the Maemo operating system runs), similar stuff for Replicant, and also 
all sorts of bash and screen and ncurses environments for people who like 
running GNU/Linux or Replicant without starting an X server.

The category name is hard. It could belong to 'Interface/*' section. The name 
could be 'UX' (user experience), 'desktop' (but this ignores the mobile world), 
'OS interface', or I don't know what.
