X11, Window Managers Apparently, my article a few days ago caused a bigger stir than I had anticipated, not at all unrelated to the fact that my wordings may not have been optimal. So, let me clarify things a bit.

it's indeed the case Gnome seems willing to do much deeper architectual changes within it's 2.x release. KDE commits to binary compatibility in it's X.y releases, so it is much more restricted (unless Gnome also keeps binary compatibility with 2.0, but i guess they would need a 3.x release to really fix/refactor stuff, and would have released such a thing already). Gnome sure has added big stuff, like cairo, which will in time bring it on par with Vista...
