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?

I don't really get it. The right-click in Gnome is a context-sensitive menu. It is different depending on where you click, what you click on. Right-clicking on a file is something I do a lot. So he doesn't want that?? He wants ?what? instead? Right-clicking on the desktop is also standard Nautilus behaviour. Right-clicking on a Gnome-panel gives you panel options. He doesn't want that? What would he like to replace it with??
