I agree. However, the way you can configure your seat, radio, etc... is not the only thing you have to take into account when buying a car. There are some other things that you should care about them too.
The same for OSes. Maybe you can compare the GUI, and, if you don't care about other things (you're a noob user, for example), you can say: this Os is better. But if you're not a noob, you should compare more things, and IMO the GUI of an OS isn't the most important part of it. The API (what programs can do), the HAL (which hw is suported), the connectivity, the robustness, etc... are more important things, IMO.
Of course that matters, and ofcourse you should also look at other things, but still, you could say that you think OS1 is better than OS2, because: all your hardware worked out-of-the-box with OS2, but not with OS1, that OS1's GUI is better, that OS1 is more robust, that OS2 is ... etcetera
