Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Some bad blood between Linus Torvalds and GNOME developers is flaring up again. Previously, Torvalds has said that Linux users should switch to KDE instead of GNOME because of the GNOME team's 'users are idiots' mentality. Now he has 'put his money where his mouth is' by submitting patches to GNOME in order to have it behave as he likes. This week, on the Linux Foundation's (formerly OSDL) Desktop Architects mailing list, the two sides are going mano a mano." Can I interest you in a pair of these and these?

RE[2]: Why, oh, why..

Member since:

I was simply tired of having to do hours of re-configuring everything until it worked as I liked. How can you say you spent hours configuring KDE, but Gnome just works? That statement is asinine. I spend 10 minuets configuring KDE to the way I like it, that includes downloading extra packages to get the themes and 'confusing' options I want.
I have no idea if I can configure Gnome to the way I like my windows displayed, I have not used it in years, but I assume it is not as easy as KDE. I like the close window 'X' on the left of the menu, and the rest of the buttons on the right.
