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?

Surprised they didn't pick GNOME

Seeing the article title, I assumed they would pick Gnome.

KDE is still working out the bugs in its latest revision, which was major enough that a.) it still has bugs and b.) it alienated a lot of users.

Where KDE has better technology, though, GNOME has proven stability, and backing from Red Hat, Novell, Sun... Granted, KDE now benefits from Nokia purchasing Trolltech, but I'm betting there's more money in GNOME.
