Gnome The GNOME team has released GNOME 2.26, the latest release in the 2.x release branch. As everyone knows, GNOME is a multi-platform open source desktop environment. The 2.26 release continues GNOME's policy of incremental updates to a stable base, and as such, it comes packed with a boatload of new features.

GNOME please, EAT KDE's lunch...

Why would you (or anybody else) want that? Why the antagonism? I use XFCE and GNOME, but that certainly doesn't mean I want KDE to fail. Quite the contrary, I want KDE to succeed and become as amazing as it possibly can. I want it to be become so amazing it makes me want to switch over. Because if it does then I get a better desktop to use, and who wouldn't want that?

Competition is good. Two desktop environments pushing and helping each other to become better is great. If for some reason one GNOME or KDE would fall by the wayside it would be a loss for all *nix users no matter what your favorite DE happens to be.
