Linux It is not too surprising that Ubuntu came in first in's 2007 Desktop Linux Market Survey, or that Firefox was the topmost browser by far. More interesting is that for the first time ever in the site's annual surveys, GNOME surpassed KDE among desktop environments (45% over 35%), with Xfce a solid third (8%).

RE[5]: Gnome is back

I'd go with Anda here, he makes a valid point. Technically, Qt and KDE are seperate, but in practice, they are as tied to each other as GTK and Gnome.

He makes a point about the DCOP thing as well, I guess you read that, so I don't have to reply on that as well.

The K3B thing was mostly a thing of the past, when Gnome/GKT didn't have a half-decent cd burn app (and I'm not only talking about features like burning a .iso file, but also about working on and with every cd burn device out there). Now there are G apps that are good enough, and if you are happy with basic and (believe you) don't need anything else, you can do without K3B.

Anyway, lovely comment - 'half lies half trues'. I did exaggerate, but not lie - it's more true than you think (and say). Though, I agree, truth is a difficult thing and there's a thin line between exaggerating and lying. So I guess it depends on one's world view.
