Gnome "The GNOME Foundation has issued a statement in response to recent accusations that it has been supporting the acceptance of Microsoft's Office Open XML format as an ECMA standard at the expense of the Open Document Format, the open standard used by OpenOffice.org, KOffice and other free software office applications. However, whether the statement's attempt at logical rebuttal will do anything to reduce the emotions or altruism behind the criticisms is anybody's guess."

> was a mess by it self that needed to be rewrited,

no, actually, it was serving kde users and developers just fine. when we switched to d-bus, we actually had to push for and implement a large number of improvements to the tool chain around d-bus and in d-bus itself to get even near where we were with DCOP. d-bus is the right way to go (i was one of the early advocates even) but it's not because it's more mature that DCOP was.

there are some nice new features that come with d-bus (i've personally enjoyed exploiting a few them =), but DCOP was still very solid.

and yes, d-bus built on the lessons from dcop. that's why it looks a lot more like dcop than, say, bonobo.

which dcop mailing list would this be? and which mails to it? or ... are you just writing what you think sounds good? ;)
