X11, Window Managers Even though some users of the two desktops take every opportunity to make fun or flat-out attack one another, it is no secret to more reasonable people that the KDE and GNOME projects strive to make their respective desktops interoperate, and that the developers working on either of the two projects have a great deal of respect for one another.

The fact that a person can use Linux at school, work, whatever and then go somewhere else and use a Linux that looks, feels and acts completely different is a major turn off to the oh-so-sought after "average consumer."

That isn't going to change because a bunch of people have decided to hold a conference together.
