Gnome "Despite the head start that KDE enjoyed, the large number of KDE users and developers, and Linus Torvalds personally endorsing KDE, GNOME has won the desktop environment battle. The final victory came with the third piece of a corporate trifecta, giving GNOME the official nod from Red Hat, Sun Microsystems, and finally Novell. The question is, will the triumph of GNOME lead to the rise or downfall of the Linux desktop?" Run Forrest! Run!

Why you shouldn't use the Lessor Gnu Public License

Gnome has corporate sponsors and interest because they can use the code and not give back to the community. What do you want more of, free software or proprietary and commercial software?

Keep Linux free, use KDE!
