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?

First, please don't insult me. I have absolutely nothing to do with sbenitezb, and I am no more a troll for disliking the GTK+ file picker than you are for disliking the Qt file dialog. I even admitted that I should try the new one.

With that out of the way, I will definately say that the GNOME 2.16 (or GTK+ 2.18?) file picker looks much improved from the picture. I daresay that the GNOME and KDE file dialogs look like they're growing closer to each other. The version in GNOME 2.14 looks like this: http://i13.tinypic.com/333bjo7.png

Hopefully once Etch is released, Sid will get the new GNOME and I'll get the improved file picker.
