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?

1. I'm not surprized by Linus and his actions; his character is as deep as a spit, no wonder he has problems swiming in there.

2. Real computer developers don't use desktops, and have no mouse on their table.

4. Yes, desktop users are power users, because they feed the economy. I don't know if this is smart, but it works for me ;)

3. I think the spirit of KDE vs GNOME goes something like this: 'we want free windows so that we can enjoy it' vs 'we want an open platform for everybody to do their job'.
