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. This has lead to an attempt to jointly organise the desktops' flagship conferences, in one place, in 2009.

Caution about announcement

Hey, just a caution: this is not set in stone yet. This is mostly an agreement to put forward a joint proposal. It would still have to be voted on by the KDE e.V. internally and potentially have to beat out KDE specific event locations. I'm sure the same would have to happen on the Gnome side...

It's definitely exciting to try to pull this off, but it is in no way a done deal yet.

Cheers folks
