Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Any discussion about GNOME vs. KDE is sure to end in tears. It's basically impossible to discuss which of these two Free desktop environments is better than the other, mostly because they cater to different types of people, with different needs and expectatotions. As such, Bruce Byfield decided to look at the two platforms from a different perspective: if we consider their developmental processes, which of the two is most likely to be more successful in the coming years?

Apple did it with Mac OS X, KDE did it with KDE4, and to a lesser extent, Microsoft did it with Vista

Mmm, and to a very large extent, Gnome did it with Gnome 2.0. We've had 14 editions with incremental (but never ending) progress which was enabled by the great leap in infrastructure that Gnome 2.0 was.
