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.

So, if Gnome is dead in the water because its not moving towards breaking binary compatibility with a 3.x release, and KDE is slowly advancing towards a less impressive than previously thought, why are they in worse shape than the main commercial OSes?

Windows is still stuck in the 5.x release series when last I checked, and MacOS hasn't seen a major version revision in just as long.

Clearly revolutions in interfaces and the breaking of compatibility for the sake of it aren't things sought out very often by anyone.
